The Physical Presence of Books

Mark Eckel, on the importance of books in your home and in your mind:

Yes, the physical presence of books is important. But there’s more. It seems that the building of a physical library impacts the view children have of themselves. Children who have books in their possession now see themselves as readers, as members of a different group. Engaged in reading, young people see the world in a different way. Students who read know they have something to learn outside their own experience.
