Why read? (6)

books

Just belatedly come across an excellent blog by Nick Roark called “Tolle Lege” [Take up and read!] where he munches through books at a Carson-esque rate offering up some up the choicest morsels for the rest of us. Particularly loved this quote he puts on his sidebar:

“When you find a chillness upon your souls, and that your former heat begins to abate, ply yourselves with warm clothes, get those good books that may acquaint you with such truths as may warm and affect your hearts.”
–-Thomas Watson, 1662
