“To a historian libraries are food, shelter, and even muse. They are of two kinds: the library of published material, books, pamphlets, periodicals, and the archive of unpublished papers and documents.” Barbara Tuchman
“I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them. After my father died, the book that sort of saved my life was Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude. Because of that experience, I firmly believe there are books whose greatness actually enables you to live, to do something.And sometimes, human beings need story and narrative more than they need nourishment and food.” Emma Thompson

Edwin is an intelligent young man who is highly skilled with technology. Having recently graduated from University, Edwin does not have a disposable income and so lives in an undecorated, single-roomed bungalow with only the old family computer to keep him occupied. Rather than buying furniture with what little cash he has, he has chosen to blow it all on a single extravagant purchase – a 3D printer. You know what they say: Intelligence does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with common sense.
