"The pictures shimmer and vanish, except when they don’t, because sometimes, when you close your eyes, a picture lingers, unwanted and unerasable, coating the insides of your eyelids the way a daguerreotype’s mercury fumes coat a plate of silver with a sitter’s wraith."

Watching the Killing by Jill Lepore (Sept 4, 2014)

"There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later."

— George Orwell (via abagofbooks)
