Why I Read: The Serious Pleasure of Books

Highlights: “T. S. Eliot, who remarked in one of his essays that immature poets imitate, mature poets steal).”

“help you realize that your present will someday be someone else’s past.”

“Nothing takes you out of yourself the way a good book does, but at the same time nothing makes you more aware of yourself as a solitary creature, possessing your own particular tastes, memories, associations, beliefs. Even as it fully engages you with another mind (or maybe many other minds, if you count the characters’ as well as the author’s), reading remains a highly individual act. No one will ever do it precisely the way you do.”
