- C.S. Lewis (again, did he really write this?)
I am unable to quickly find a source. There is a similar quote from An Experiment in Criticism, but I am unable to quickly find it either. It is a Holiday Weekend and I am not spending much time looking for the source (if it is actually Lewis, see post #521). I have found some sites crediting William Nicholson, the playwright and screenwriter for Shadowlands. Yet, it is true. I attended the National Book Festival in DC yesterday, and I was not alone. I do not know how they can come up with an accurate count, but there were thousands upon thousands of people wandering about the convention center, buying books, getting their books signed, listening to authors speak, 10 hours of books.
