it's geometrically progressive

i was reading a book the other day (the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society) and one line really stuck out to me.
"that's what i really love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you onto another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. it's geometrically progressive- all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment."
so true. so, so true. there have been so many times when a friend recommended a book or the cover catches my eye and i'm interested. a few pages in, and i already love it and have decided that i will read any other book that is associated with it in some way {topic, author, etc.}. i've also loved a book so much that i decided to read all books written by reviewers on the back cover. i love finding one that i'm excited enough in that i just have to find another to take its place. i can only hope that it's as good as the original.

i haven't read one of those books in a while. how sad. {the last time i got that excited was probably kite runner years ago, but i actually liked a thousand splendid suns more.}
