Books Confirm Your Own Opinion.

But then books, as I’m sure you know, seldom prompt a course of action.  Books generally just confirm you in what you have, perhaps unwittingly, decided to do already.  You go to a book to have your convictions corroborated.  A book, as it were, closes the book.

The Queen, in The Uncommon Reader, by Alan Bennett, p. 114
