Books change your view

I can’t recall who it was right now, but one Enlightenment era philosopher said, “The way to the world is through the printed page.” Reading allows us to broaden our minds beyond the narrow confines of our own experience and way of thinking. It helps us “see.” As Douglas Wilson said: “Education is the process of selling someone on books.” The importance of education and reading is one of my themes in this blog. I found this picture on the net and it nicely displays just how books work – by changing our view.
