The soft sound of the page turning, the light touch of the paper on your fingertip, or feeling sense of accomplishment as you near the end of a book. All of these are what makes reading a book worthwhile.
Pre-loved books have a story, shared between another and you. This is a wonderful Connection, and to think that each story has been read by another before you is a wonderful way of accepting the reader, the book, and the story, that came before you. And when giving a book to another, it is in turn, sharing yourself with other.
