Thinking About Books

If you have a passion for understanding literature and why it matters, these titles will be right up your alley. The value of artistic criticism, how books can change lives, and the history of puzzles and maps are just a few of the literary subjects inspiring authors recently. And it shouldn't come as a surprise that we have a soft spot for books that celebrate reading.
