Why Our Future Depends on Books

We must keep books relevant and accessible, or our future may suffer.

A major reason, of course, lies in future generations. Not only for literacy but because books are able to show children different worlds and educate them on things they would never have dreamed of.

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.”

~ Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“It is clear that the books owned the shop rather than the other way about. Everywhere they had run wild and taken possession of their habitat, breeding and multiplying, and clearly lacking any strong hand to keep them down.”

And books, they offer one hope that a whole universe might open up from between the covers, and falling into that universe, one is saved.

Around the World in 8 Book Cafés

If you’re a lover of books, a self-proclaimed bibliophile, then you know how amazing it is when you can find that cozy spot that draws you in, makes you comfortable, and leaves you to your own devices (aka reading). Book cafés and readers are a match made in heaven, where there are books and coffee (or tea) there will be a devoted reader. Today we’re looking at some beautiful book cafés from around the globe.

 

Also, check out the comment below the article. There's another spectacular book store/book cafe. 

 

They all look wonderful. I only wish there was one close to where I live.

“Books speak to us thoughtfully, one at a time. They demand our attention. And they demand that we briefly put aside our own beliefs and prejudices and listen to someone else’s. There’s one questions I think we should ask one another a lot more often, and that’s “what are you reading?”

This Town in Spain is Filled with Bookstores

Travel 2 hours northwest of Madrid and you will find Urueña - a tiny town beside a medieval castle wall in Spain. In 2007, Urueña decided to become a Villa del Libro (a town of books) and joined the International Organization of Book Towns
