“I love books.  I adore everything about them.  I love the feel of the pages on my fingertips.  They are light enough to carry, yet so heavy with worlds and ideas.  I love the sound of the pages flicking against my fingers.  Print against fingerprints.  Books make people quiet, yet they are so loud.”  Author Nnedi Okorator
