David Black On Monday, we talked a lot about the nature of reading, and somewhat implicitly why we read or what we get out of it. I ran across this quote today that resonated with me.

"Books say: She did this because.
Life says: She did this.
Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren’t. I’m not surprised some people prefer books."
— Julian Barnes, Flaubert’s Parrot
