"Authors don’t own books… Readers do."

"Consider the dystopia: a world where polite society has vanished, where you have to fend for yourself against impossible tyranny, where you have all the responsibilities of being an adult but almost none of the privileges. Sound familiar? Teenagers don’t see dystopias as dystopias; they see them as barely fictional representations of their day-to-day lives… Why do teenagers like dystopias? Simple. They’re looking for proof that there’s a way to survive the one in which they are already living."
The spectacular Patrick Ness reviewing Ship Breaker for The Guardian. (via thebookishdark)

I couldn’t resist. John’s descriptions are just so… descriptive.
-And yes I did watch the video multiple times so I could accurately depict what John was saying.

"Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times? As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells, and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower, both strange and familiar."
Cornelia Funke (via aeterne)
