7 cărți despre cărți pentru bibliofilul din tine

Pentru un cititor înrăit cele mai bune cărți sunt cele despre…cărți! Acestea nu îi oferă doar un loc de refugiu oarecare, ci un univers creat exact pe măsura nevoilor sale. Un loc unde decorul e de obicei o bibliotecă și pasajele ei secrete, unde personajele sunt scriitori geniali torturați de muză, cititori curioși mereu în căutarea unei aventuri, sau bibliotecari misterioși. În astfel de cărți lectura nu înseamnă cuvinte legate între ele, ci o legătură între oameni.

 

1. Cemetery of forgotten books ( Angel’s Game, Shadow of the wind, Prisonier of Heaven), by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

 “Julian once wrote that coincidences are the scars of fate. There are no coincidences, Daniel. We are puppets of our subconscious desires.” 

2. The Book of Lost Things, by John Connolly 

“Without a human voice to read them aloud, or a pair of wide eyes following them by flashlight beneath a blanket, books had no real existence in our world. Like seeds in the beak of a bird waiting to fall to earth, or the notes of a song laid out on a sheet, yearning for an instrument to bring their music into being. they lie dormant hoping for the chance to emerge.They want us to give them life.” 

3. The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak 

“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn’t already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.” 

4. The Library at Night, by Alberto Manguel 

“In the dark, with the windows lit and the rows of books glittering, the library is a closed space, a universe of self-serving rules that pretend to replace or translate those of the shapeless universe beyond. ”

5. People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks

“I asked once, and the library assistant told me there were more than a hundred thousand books there, and more than sixty million pages of documents. It’s a good number, I think: ten pages for every person who died. A kind of monument in paper for people who have no gravestones.” 

6. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstorem, by Robin Sloan

“Imagination runs out. But it makes sense, right? We probably just imagine things based on what we already know, and we run out of analogies in the thirty-first century.” 

7. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski 

“We all create stories to protect ourselves.”

Scriu și citesc, iar asta îmi ocupă tot timpul. Cred în anticipație și în curiozitate ca fiind cea mai pură formă de insubordonare. Nici o poveste nu poate fi spusă fără poezie. Arta nu ar trebui să fie separată de viață ca și cum ar fi prea prețioasă pentru utilizarea de zi cu zi. Poate tocmai de aceea deviza mea este: dream, create, inspire.
