“Reading alters the appearance of a book. Once it has been read, it never looks the same again, and people leave their individual imprint on a book they have read.”
– “The Old Patagonian Express,” Paul Theroux

Well-worn books have their own catalog of memories, little hints left of those who have read them and those moments the book has shared with a reader. &, of course, that delicious smell. Used books are nearly always superior to brand-new ones.
