Devotions upon Emergent Readerships

“Your really that concerned about what someone else is reading?”

No man is a pamphlet entire of itself; every man is a chapter in the binding, a part of a book; if a leaf be blown away by the wind, the library is the less, as well as if a literary classic were, as well as if a biography of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s dearth of reading diminishes me, because I am involved in his plot. And therefore never send to know for whom the page turns; it turns for thee.
