Thought for the Day

To reread a beloved book after a long time away is always
a great risk. [. . .] for a book that is more than merely a favorite,
a book that has a hand in creating you, the risk of loss is even
greater. [. . .] if you were to lose that book, you would feel that
you had lost some necessary part of yourself. [. . .]
