Quotes From Canada; Ann-Marie MacDonald

7199

After reading Adult Onset, I was reminding myself of Ann-Marie MacDonald’s first two books that I read so long ago, and I came across these two quotes about reading. Both are from The Way the Crow Flies.

Afterwards, in bed with a book, the spell of television feels remote compared to the journey into the page. To be in a book. To slip into the crease where two pages meet, to live in the place where your eyes alight upon the words to ignite a world of smoke and peril, colour and serene delight. That is a journey no one can end with the change of a channel. Enduring magic. 

There are some stories you can’t hear enough. They are the same every time you hear them. But you are not. That’s one reliable way of understanding time.
