"If I was a book, I would like to be a library book, so I would be taken
home by all different sorts of kids. A library book, I imagine, is a
happy book.”
“The best story is for me the one that children steal from their
parents’ desk or grandparents from their grandchildren’s.”
"There are those people who love books and are greedy for books
and the rustling of paper and the printed letter and I wanted to write
about this. This lust for the printed word. And I think Inkheart is all
about that. The enchantment that comes from books."
