For a reader, one of life's pleasures is the silence after the book.

I really love that idea. My tendency is to actually get just a little bit sad after finishing a book I really loved--I think I'll try channeling that into being more contemplative.

Yes, I know what you mean about getting a little sad. There's another quote from The 13th Tale (I think) about the feeling of finishing a book . . . I'll have to see if I can dig it up.
