Wisdom from The Guernsey....

I am reading a most unique novel...The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by
Shaffer and Barrows!

I began it last night and didn't want to put it down. The setting is England and the Channel Islands in 1946.

Quotes from "the Guernsey"....
"Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true."

"I love seeing the bookshops and meeting booksellers- booksellers really are a special breed.
No one in their right mind would take up clerking at a bookstore for the salary, and no one in his right mind would want to own one-the margin of profit is too small. So, it has to be a love of readers and reading that make them do it-along with first dibs on the new books."

More another day!
