The First Book: Go ahead, it won’t bite. Well… maybe a little. More a nip, like. A tingle. It’s pleasurable, really. You see, it keeps on opening. You may fall in. Sure, it’s hard to get started; remember learning to use knife and fork? Dig in: you’ll never reach bottom. It’s not like it’s the end of the world — just the world as you think you know it.
