Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Nocturnos lemures

Somnia, terrores magicos, miracula, sagas,
Nocturnos lemures, portentaque.
Dreams, magic terrors, spells of mighty power,
Witches, and ghosts who rove at midnight hour.

I'm finally reading that most scandalous, horrid gothic novel, Lewis' The Monk.
