"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)

E. M. Forster painted by Roger Fry

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.
