I had just taken to reading. I had just discovered the art of leaving my body to sit impassive in a crumpled up attitude in a chair or sofa, while I wandered over the hills and far away in novel company and new scenes… My world began to expand very rapidly,… the reading habit had got me securely.

-H. G. Wells

Beautiful painting, and lovely quote. So true! I remember feeling this way as well when the world of books was opened up to me!
