What is Reading

“A book is a door; on the other side is somewhere else … Books work from the inside out. They are a private conversation happening somewhere in the soul…”

“Reading is becoming a casualty of the surf syndrome of the web. Reading is not skimming for information. Reading is a deeper dive.”

“When we open a book … we really do enter, as far as our brains are concerned, a new world … and it is our cognitive immersion in that world that gives reading its rich emotional force.”

“We must reposition literature in settings … where its profound worth will be seen for what it really is: the holder of human value, human meaning and, yes, even the secrets of the universe.”

“Reading is a way through, a way in, a way out … a way of life.”
