Rave on

The kind of book that you contemplate taking in to the shower with you, the kind of book that you eat or your meals over, the kind of book that makes you skip meals and coffees and dinner dates and parties, the kind of book that you get off the bus reading – your pupils dilating in the dark, the kind of book you read before you have your morning tea, the kind of book you get up early and stay up late for, the kind of book that changes your mood, the kind of book you bribe yourself with – if I do half an hour of work I can read a chapter, the kind of book that makes you think: maybe I do only really need books, the kind of book that you like more than half the people you know, the kind of book that gives pace to your day, the kind of book where you have to ration out the last few pages, the kind of book that you want to reread immediately...that’s what I’m talking about.
