(Click on cartoon to enlarge.)

"What better occupation, really, than to spend the evening at the fireside with a book, with the wind beating on the windows and the lamp burning bright....Haven't you ever happened to come across in a book some vague notion that you've had, some obscure idea that returns from afar and that seems to express completely your most subtle feelings?"
                            ----------------Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary 

"Oui, M'sieur, that I have had. Subtle and not so subtle feelings, and vague and not so vague notions, uh-huh. About every time, no, by golly, every time I pick up a book and hear the wind, and sometimes the rain, beating on the window with the lights burning brightly, i get filled up, overcome, vastly excited, and all the other adverbs, and my mind fills with vague notions and subtle feelings, and I can't begin to tell you - such feelings, such notions! I'm overwhelmed as I open the book and make myself comfortable - on the floor, on the couch, in the chair, on an airplane, in a submarine, on the deck of a fine ship in the middle of the ocean! Wherever! I must read, I must read, my soul, my life, my everything is about to be expanded when I begin to read a book."
