'Never before had I felt trapped, so seduced and caught up in a story,' Clara explained, ' the way I did with that book. Until then, reading was just a duty, a sort of fine one had to pay teachers and tutors without quite knowing why. I had never known the pleasure of reading, of exploring the recesses of the soul, of letting myself be carried away by imagination, beauty, and the mystery of fiction and language. For me all those things were born with that novel.
Eg trur at det er dette eg vil at mine ikkje-lesande venner skal oppdaga. Gleden ved å lesa, gleden ved å bli dratt inn i ein historie som du for alt i verden ikkje vil gå ut av, og den oppdagelsen du gjer når du etter ei utlest bok må ha ei ny med ei gong!
Keep reading those books!
