Some Thoughts on Reading, Reflecting, and Embracing Life
Narrated by Jeff Harding / 7 hours 3 minutes
“Anyone can recommend a book, but it's rare that someone can fully articulate its lifelong impact. Schwalbe has the rarest of voices -- both intimate and universal -- and with deep care and reflection he offers readers the most personal and heartfelt parts of himself in his latest collection. This is not a list of Schwalbe's favorite books, but is instead an explanation of how certain books and authors taught him timeless lessons about our deepest longings. Schwalbe's voice leaps off the page and fills the room as only the liveliest conversations can. I can't stop thinking about this book and want to read every title mentioned, if only to keep the conversation going.”Miriam Landis, Island Books
