Sometimes they would sit in the parlor together, both reading - in entirely separate worlds, to be sure, but joined somehow. When this happened, other people in the family couldn't bring themselves to disturb them. All that could be heard in the parlor was the sound of pages turning.
~Alice Hoffman, Blackbird House

The 'sound of pages turning' says so much, doesn't it?

She's a fabulous author.
