I flipped my Pomegranate Reading Woman Calendar page to July and what do I see? A quote from Edith Wharton…
“The true felicity of a lover of books is the luxurious turning of page by page, the surrender, not merely abject, but deliberate and cautious, with your wits about you, as you deliver yourself into the keeping of the book. This I call reading.”
Isn’t that lovely? Just more proof that I must seek out more Edith Wharton after having read Glimpses of the Moon.
What book are you surrendering to lately? Right now, I can’t believe I’ve only got one book going on, The Collaborator of Bethlehem. It’s so very good. I also made the mistake of wandering over to Soho Press, the books’ publisher, and now I have lots more books to add to my wish list. If you’ve read any authors/books from them are there some you recommend?
Alright I’m off to continue reading my book and of course checking out the other books on my shelves which are vying for my attention. I’m sure I’ll be starting some others soon.
