Books are your companion when you’re lonely. They are a place to escape to, where you can try on another identity for awhile. Books let you travel without leaving home. They are expanders of worlds, teachers, therapists, and friends, and for that we love them.
To be sure, books are thieves, stealing away hours at a time. They are greedy, too, demanding love and friendship and a dry shelf to rest on.
But, they are also compassionate and funny and wise. They are a soft place to land and a door to another world.
All that in just paper and ink.
Imagine a world without books…
Stay with us in the coming months as we come together to keep books alive.
