Lust and Longing

“You would think I’d get enough of books.  They are stacked all over my house.  More arrive every week, one way or another.  But, like any true book lover, I never do get enough.  I regard the shelves in any bookstore with the same mix of lust and longing I experience when I stare into a bakery showcase.


Or at Gregory Peck – I don’t care how old he is.”


~ Elizabeth Berg, Escaping Into the Open: The Art of Writing True
