"The world was a terrible place, cruel, pitiless, dark as a bad dream. Not a good place to live. Only in books could you find pity, comfort, happiness - and love. Books loved anyone who opened them, they gave you security and friendship and didn’t ask anything in return; they never went away, never, not even when you treated them badly."
Cornelia Funke. (via abrandnewsong)
Does someone want to explain to me what Cornelia Funke has written/what her books are about, because I’m too lazy to Wikipedia atm? (Besides, hearing about books from fans is usually better than wiki.)
