A Marvelous Invention

Joseph Epstein, "What I Read," The Atlantic (August 25, 2010):
What, you might wonder, do I do with all the time I don't spend in endless swamp of ephemeral news? Well, I've made a little rediscovery of a marvelous invention called books, which I'm told are going out of style but which give a satisfaction much deeper than any other means of communication I know. You might want to turn off your computer, trash your newspaper, flick off your television, and give them a shot.

Ferdinand Heilbuth (1826-1889), The Reader
