Happy Thanksgiving

Given how things are going right now I need to remind myself, per Steven Riddle, William Michaelian and other wonderful book bloggers...I need to remind myself to take time out to enjoy and appreciate the wonders around me. This includes the pleasures from books...
Because when I read, I don't really read; I pop a beautiful sentence into my mouth and suck it like a fruit drop, or I sip it like a liqueur until the thought dissolves in me like alcohol, infusing brain and heart and coursing through the veins to the root of each blood vessel.

- Bohumil Hrabal, Too Loud a Solitude (translation by Michael Henry Heim)
