Quote of the Week

"To write books is so easy, it requires only pen and ink and the ever-present paper. To print books is a little more difficult, because genius so often rejoices in illegible handwriting. To read books is more difficult still, because of the tendency to go to sleep. But the most difficult task of all that mortal man can embark on is to sell a book."
- as attributed to Felix Dahn in Only in Books (a very similar wording of the same sentiments is attributed to Frank Arthur Mumby in the same book)
