Date a girl who doesn’t read because the girl who reads knows the importance of plot. She can trace out the demarcations of a prologue and the sharp ridges of a climax. She feels them in her skin. The girl who reads will be patient with an intermission and expedite a denouement. But of all things, the girl who reads knows most the ineluctable significance of an end. She is comfortable with them. She has bid farewell to a thousand heroes with only a twinge of sadness.

Eu mesmo não sei o que fazer, onde ir … Eu minto em crack de um livro para o meu conforto … é que o mundo oferece … por favor me deixe sozinha a sonhar como eu imagino.
