In sum, for me the best bed books are those that deny the existance of tomorrow. To read in bed is to draw around us invisible, noiseless curtains. Then at last we are in a room of our own and are ready to burrow back, back, back to that private life of the imagination we all led as a child and to whose secret satisfactions so many of us have mislaid the key.” – Clifton Fadiman
