An Extra Life, Or Thousand…

“If you read a novel you will be someone else for the duration of that book. And that means you will have lived an extra life”.
Yann Martel

I think this is a lovely quote paying homage to the lovely places books transport us to, and to the stories that inspire and expand our outlooks.

      1. well, you might be astonished, but I prefer Russian authors and have more than 400 books only from Russian authors and several hundred others, i.e. German, English, Greek authors. Thanks for the hint. When it comes to Germany I will read it.
