Working magic...

"What an astonishing thing a book is. 
It's a flat object made from a tree
 on which are imprinted 
lots of funny dark squiggles. 
But one glance at it and you're 
inside the mind of another person, 
maybe somebody dead 
for thousands of years. 
Across the millennia, 
an author is speaking 
clearly and silently inside your head, 
directly to you. 
Writing is perhaps 
the greatest of human inventions, 
binding together people 
who never knew each other, 
citizens of distant epochs. 
Books break the shackles of time. 
A book is proof that humans 
are capable of working magic." 

~ Carl Sagan

What a great quote for book lovers everywhere! :)
