“Am tempted to turn many pages”

 “Something like the woodland sounds will be heard to echo through the leaves of a good book. Sometimes I hear the fresh emphatic note of the oven-bird, and am tempted to turn many pages; sometimes the hurried chuckling sound of the squirrel when he dives into the wall.”
—From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), June 20, 1840.
