A book is like a big hug

Think About It

November 11, 1998

"While critical to building brains, reading is equally important to building trusting and close relationships. That's why many of us remember the warm embrace or the comfortable lap that cradled us when we read books as children. And that's why reading should not be viewed solely as an intellectual proposition, particularly in the era in which we now live."

- Hillary Rodham Clinton, Time magazine, Feb. 2, 1997
