Row on row

books rest, wise and eager

waiting for a hopeful reader

Someone seeking information

or an escape into fiction.

In racks and stacks

new worlds await

and the library is the gate.

Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul.  The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it.  Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.

Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s Shadow of the Wind. p. 13
