Brain Food


"I’m beginning to see that our appetite for books is the same as our appetite for food, that our brain tells us when we need the literary equivalent of salads, or chocolate, or meat and potatoes."–Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree

I love this quote. A suggestion (a) that books are brain food and (b) that we listen to our heads and we’ll read just exactly what we need. Just as if we listen to our bodies, we’ll eat exactly what we need. (OK, that’s basically a paraphrase of the quote, isn’t it? Not very insightful at all.)
