Why Books?

“One of the beauties of books is that, at their best, they’re not so much manifestos as blueprints for a reader’s participation. The author says some things outright, suggests others and probably reveals a thing or two unconsciously, while the best readers bring nearly as much to a book as the writer did, and if they like it they make it uniquely their own. The real end of a truly successful book comes when the author and one particular reader walk off together into the sunset after sharing an adventure. It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” – John Gierach
