Sunday Sentence: Great Books by David Denby

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

Walking home from midtown Manhattan, I am drawn haplessly to a bookstore…where I will buy two or three books, which then, often enough, sit on my shelves for years, unread or partly read, until finally, trying to look something up, I will pull one or another out, bewildered that I have it. I like to own them: I had grown into a book-buyer, but not always a book-reader; a boon to the book trade, perhaps, but not a boon to myself.
