books are beautiful...

There is a sort of busy worm,
That will the fairest book deform.
Their tasteless tooth will tear and taint
The poet, patriot, sage or saint,
Nor sparing wit nor learning.
Now, if you'd know the reason why,
The best of reasons I'll supply:
'Tis bread to the poor vermin.

– J. Doraston, quoted by W. Blades

From Inkheart.

Loved Harry Potter. Circle of Inheritance is in my list. I read the Artemis Fowl books too. They were quite good. Smart plots and well written.
