Musings: The Reader’s Face

… he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.

– Jorge Louis Borges

The details that linger, the details that we choose to remember or, more tellingly, that we have no choice but to remember, these are the indelible imprints that books leave on our minds and, in equal measure, those that we impress on the books we read; they are as varied as our faces and as much a part of who we are.
