Some books bite

The best books leave a mark. We can put the book on the shelf. We can turn the book in. We can give the book away. But we cannot get rid of the book's bite. We carry it with us like a scar or a war wound. And sometimes, when the weather is changing or when we're alone in a quiet place, the scars from great books still ache.
