"I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have gone ourselves." (E. M. Forster)

This feels very true for me. Sometimes books arrive in a serendipitous manner bring what I need to read exactly at the right time.

This really resonated with me also. And I feel the same way about when books "come to me".
As it happens. I decided to buy "Howard's End" for my Kindle after finding this quote. As I was reading the novel over the weekend - I realized I'd read it a long time ago ... but, I also realized - this is just the right time for me to REALLY read it! I am loving it.
