On the Role of Books

“We think of reading as something we do alone. But in reality, books connect us.

We talk about books, and we bring the ideas that we learn from books, the stories that we’ve heard about books, the characters that we’ve fallen in love with–we bring them into our conversations.

  • Books make us more empathetic
  • They connect us to one another
  • They make people who are not like us more human”
