Quotation of the Week:
“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us… We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into the forests far from everyone, like a suicide.  A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.”  Franz Kafka (1884-1924)
