“We are one person, James.”

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. Once of the pleasures of reading is seeing this alteration on the pages, and the way, by reading it, you have made the book yours. —Paul Theroux, The Old Patagonian Express: By Train Through the Americas (via bookishleaves)

GET TO KNOW ME MEME: 5 favourite relationships» Anna & St. Clair (from Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins) [1/5]

“You tell me I’m beautiful,and that you like my hair and you like my smile. You rest your leg against mine in darkened theaters,and then you act as if nothing happened when the lights go up.You slept in my bed for three nights straight,and then you just…blew me off for the next month.What am I supposed to do with that,St. Clair? You said on my birthday that you were afraid of being alone,but I’ve been here this whole time.This whole time.”
