“The taste for books was an early one. As a child he was sometimes found at midnight by a page still reading. They took his taper away, and he bred glow-worms to serve his purpose. They took the glow-worms away and he almost burnt the house down with a tinder.”

– Virginia Woolf

Glow worms! Why didn’t I think of that? I bet fireflies would have worked as well.
