It鈥檚 a profoundly strange feeling, to stumble across someone whose desires are shaped so closely to your own, like reaching toward your reflection in a mirror and finding warm flesh under your fingertips. If you should ever be lucky enough to find that magical, fearful symmetry, I hope you鈥檙e brave enough to grab it with both hands and not let go.

books i've read in 2019 禄 The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
I hope you will find the cracks in the world and wedge them wider, so the light of other suns shines through; I hope you will keep the world unruly, messy, full of strange magics; I hope you will run through every open Door and tell stories when you return.

Those of you who are more than casually familiar with books鈥搕hose of you who spend your free afternoons in fusty bookshops, who offer furtive, kindly strokes along the spines of familiar titles鈥搖nderstand that page riffling is an essential element in the process of introducing oneself to a new book. It isn鈥檛 about reading the words; it鈥檚 about reading the smell, which wafts from the pages in a cloud of dust and wood pulp. It might smell expensive and well bound, or it might smell of tissue-thin paper and blurred two-colour prints, or of fifty years unread in the home of a tobacco-smoking old man. Books can smell of cheap thrills or painstaking scholarship, or literary weight or unsolved mysteries.

Must a thing be bound and shelved in order to matter? Some stories were never written down. Some stories were passed by whisper and song, mother to daughter to sister. Bits and pieces were lost over the centuries, I鈥檓 sure, details shifted, but not all of them.

Shelf-Confidence Book Photo Challenge
February 26 - Favorite Title
Doors, he told her, are change, and change is a dangerous necessity. Doors are revolutions and upheavals, uncertainties and mysteries, axis points around which entire worlds can be turned.

Absolutely spellbinding 鉁═his book snuck up and swallowed my entire Sunday and every spare minute I could find since. Not a traditional page turner, but damned if I couldn鈥檛 stop turning them. |Completed 2021.04.27

If you're some stranger who stumbled over this book by chance -- perhaps rotting in some foreign garbage pile or locked in a dusty traveling trunk or published by some small, misguided press and shelved mistakenly under Fiction -- I hope to every god you have the guts to do what needs doing. I hope you will find the cracks in the world and wedge them wider, so the light of other suns shines through; I hope you will keep the world unruly, messy, full of strange magics; I hope you will run through every open Door and tell stories when you return.

If we address stories as archaeological sites, and dust through their layers with meticulous care, we find at some level, there is always a doorway. A dividing point between here and there, us and them, mundane and magical. It is at the moments when the doors open, when things flow between the worlds, that stories happen.
Alix E. Harrow
