Abstract

ONE can hardly imagine a time when there were no books to be read and no people to read them; no struggling authors, no hard‐boiled or generous publishers, no ironical or sympathetic critics, and no avid and appreciative readers. Now there are millions of copies of books to be read and millions of people to read them. I think a world without books would be like a house without windows. Every book gives another view of life: some lovely and inspiring, others ugly and depressing, and others views of folly and fun and laughter. There are books for all tastes and moods.
