The Nature of Books


https://litofthecoldwar.voices.wooster.edu/gravitys-rainbow-and-characters/
A book gives great responsibility to our participation and commitment: reading keeps us awake and it maintains the forward motion of the text. The very nature of the book tends to emphasize the privacy and purpose of reading. Its nature is to build introspection, the way exercise improves a muscle. (David Thomson, How to Watch a Movie, 2015, p. 216)
