It takes to your thumb like a fish in water.
Do it a few times and listen to the sounds of the pages.
Go to any random number and read a few sentences.
Get it out of your system as you know you’re not interested in what it says.
Okay, maybe a little bit.
Turn your back to strangers around you and bring it to your nose.
Stick it right in, like a dog sniffing the yellow and green grasses.
Inhale the remnants of the ink and pulp.
This is how you know you’re a lover of books.
