Every Friday I am going to quote something awesome about books or writing or the general merriment of reading. Enjoy!
From the movie Out of Africa (which I highly recommend, by the way) :
Karen: He[Denys played by Robert Redford!] has got lovely books. Does he lend them?
Berkely Cole: We had a friend...Hopworth, he'd got a book from Denys and didn't return it. Denys was furious. I said to Denys..."You wouldn't lose a friend for the sake of a book." He said, "No, but he has,hasn't he?"
