“A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Books love you.
Books make life better for us. Books make us better at life.
This site is made up of stories of people whose lives were changed by a book. Together, we’re exploring how books have gotten us through difficult times, shown us what we really want in this world, or simply made us hungry for more books. Through the categories on the right, you can browse titles, authors, and ways they’ve affected people. We hope you’ll discover a book that, like Mr. Thoreau, inspires you to “commence living on its hint.” And if a book has already made a difference in your life, we’d love to hear your story.
