The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley

We have what you want, though you may not know you want it.
People need books, but they don't know they need them. Generally they are not aware that the books they need are in existence.
...there is no such thing as a good book. A book is 'good' only when it meets some human hunger... a book that is good for me would very likely be punk for you.
For paradise in the world to come is uncertain, but there is indeed a heaven on this earth, a heaven which we inhabit when we read a good book.
