I am a bibliophile and I cannot stop buying books. I want to read them all. This is a space where I share my passion for reading and hope that you will enjoy my take on the reads that I talk about. Please leave a comment as I love to hear your thoughts.
Through reading, I know that the world has not changed despite the changing landscape of the physical world and the emergence of the cyber world and advances in technologies and medical sciences. But reading cultivates empathy even if we cannot make sense of the world.
‘In reality, every reader, while he is reading, is the reader of his own self. The writer’s work is merely a kind of optical instrument, which he offers to the reader to permit him to discern what, without the book, he would perhaps never have seen in himself. The reader’s recognition in his own self of what the book says is the proof of its truth.‘
-Marcel Proust,Le temps retrouve *
*Le temps retrouve ( Finding Time Again or Time regained or The Past Recaptured) is the final volume in Proust’s novel À la recherche du temps perdu
