I love this, I really do. Your writing style is very poetic, and you capture the characters' inner qualities and depth beautifully and simplistically. Also, you manage to create a vulnerable Hawkeye while still maintaining his status as an independent, headstrong badass. This was a great read - thank you very much for it!

So touching. And he's right - they aren't just books.

What a lovely story. I admit to being a bit teary there when Clint read the inscription. I really enjoyed this, thank you for sharing.

I treated books very much like Clint did until a very beloved family member gave me The Life of Pi shortly before she passed away. I keep them now and I too understood on the day she died that they are much more than books.

I loved how the type of books that each character enjoyed fit them so perfectly. Especially Natasha's for some reason - which also made me kinda sad. Phil's note broke my heart! Great story!

Great story. Characterful and well written. I loved all the references to literature and how everyone in it read a different type of books. They all seemed very apt for the characters, and I could really imagine Clint being like this having discovered books at such a late point in his life.

So right. I nearly panicked when I thought I lost my copy of Ender's Game... Really great fic!

Clint exchanging books. I can see how he would do that and think it was okay. Very slice-of-life-ish!

Oh my God, I just sat here staring at my computer screen for five minutes after I finished, just letting tears roll down my face. It's good, it's AMAZINGLY good, and I am soooooo favoriting it right this second! Keep writing and don't let anyone tell you to ever stop!

Ah, this is perfect! Great piece of characterization and, dang, I love the book exchange! :-)

This was one of the best fanfics I've ever read. I...want to say more, but I am at a loss for words, and because you don't know me at all you don't know how RARE that is. I'm still crying. Thank you, truly, for sharing this story. It was beautiful.

That was amazing! Absolutley one of my most favourite fics EVER! The readign choices of each made perfect sense and the whole process of bringing Clint into the fold was brilliantly done. It had to be Bruce and Phil...
