Soon Anna was surrounded by piles of books

as a woman in a shoe shop

might be surrounded by boxes.

Perdue wanted Anna to feel that she was in a nest.

He wanted her to sense the boundless possibilities offered by books.

They would always be enough.

They would never stop loving their readers.

They were fixes… in an otherwise unpredictable world.

In life.

In love.

After death.
