Condition: Used, Like new, in excellent condition.
This brief guide argues that, in the future, books will be less precious than the time it takes to read them. It addresses how to tackle personal must read lists and pare them down to the books that will truly benefit their readers -- which ones to start this year, which to put on hold, and which to pull off the sagging shelves. This witty volume describes the importance of books, the way they deepen conversations, and how they create a special hold on their readers. Rather than attempting to answer the question What should we be reading? , it encourages individuals to come up with their own answers.
