Hold Fast

“Dashel learned quickly that working in a library meant knowing how to find answers to almost any kind of question; it also meant understanding changes in what people want to read as well as finding a balance between the familiar and the new.” – Hold Fast by Blue Balliett, p.10 (emphasis mine)

I just started and I love this book!

on the next page:

“a dictionary is a powerful and underestimated kind of book. First of all, it has the shortest stories in the world, and thousands of them: stories with sounds, changing shapes, history, and mystery. Open anywhere and you’ll find layers of meanings. Choices.” – Hold Fast by Blue Balliett, p.10 (emphasis author’s)
