Elena asked Douglas Preston:

This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)

Douglas Preston I'm not sure I completely understand the question, but if you're asking if reading can cause damage, I would say only if you are reading (and believing) hate propaganda like Mein Kampf. The only thing useful and not reading books is if you spent the time doing something more constructive, like helping starving children.
