The book I am currently reading:
Title: The Library Book by Susan Orlean
Even in Los Angeles, where there is no shortage of remarkable hairdos, Harry Peak attracted attention.Friday 56:
Once words and thoughts are poured into them, books are no longer just paper and ink and glue: They take on a kind of human vitality. The poet Milton called this quality in books "the potency of life."Comments:
This book is about the Los Angeles Central Library fire, possibly set by Harry Peak, and so much more. "It is really about the central role libraries have always and will always play in the life and health of a bustling democracy. Beyond that, like any good library, it's bursting with incredible tales and characters. There could be no better book for the bookish" (Dave Eggers).
