"You can't blame a writer for what the characters say." - Truman Capote

"Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly - they'll go through anything. You read and you're pierced." - Aldous Huxley

"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life." - William Somerset Maugham

In my twenty-plus years working at Bas Bleu, a lot of literary quote collections have hit my desk. No Two Persons Ever Read the Same Book stands out among them for a couple of reasons: Many of the insightful quotations were brand-new to me, and the typography (by graphic designer Dooreman) is pretty cool! Passionate readers and writers are sure to find joy and enlightenment here. Note: Van Aken doesn't shy away from quotes with ribald language, so, gentle reader, beware. (CH)
