The books of our childhood offer a vivid door to our own pasts, and not necessarily for the stories we read there, but for the memories of where we were and who we were when we were reading them; to remember a book is to remember the child who read that book.

from p. 36-37 of The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop by Lewis Buzbee
