Some of us understand the importance of books.
Of course, your family is important.
Vocation can be too.
But for some of us, books have also been a constant.
A place we could turn.
A medium that took us to unexpected places at unexpected times to find unexpected things…
“Because for some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
–Annie Lamott, Bird By Bird
