Elizabeth Hardwick:
“Perhaps,” she once observed, “the love of, or the intense need for, reading is psychological, an eccentricity, even something like a neurosis, that is, a pattern of behavior that persists beyond its usefulness, which is controlled by inner forces and which in turn controls.” (quoted in Steve Wasserman, "Steve Wasserman on the Fate of Books After the Age of Print")
