From the author of the beloved New York Times bestselling THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUB, an inspiring and magical celebration of books and reading, rich with stories and recommendations of specific books that can help guide us through our lives.
"What are you reading?" It's a simple question but a powerful one, and it can change lives. For Will Schwalbe, reading is a way to entertain himself but also to make sense of the world, to become a better person, and to find the answers to the big (and small) questions about how to live life. In this delightful celebration of reading, Schwalbe invites us along on his quest for books that speak to the specific challenges of living in our modern world, with all its noise and distractions.
Throughout, Schwalbe focuses on the way certain books can help us honor those we’ve loved and lost, and also figure out how to live each day more fully. Rich with stories and recommendations, BOOKS FOR LIVING is a treasure for everyone who loves books and loves to hear the answer to the question: “What are you reading?”
