Epicurean Simplicity

Published July 12, 2011 by wildleek

“…[N]obody I know in the business is getting rich. Yet there are enough ardent, intelligent readers whose need for such writing is real–and, miraculously, enough editors and publishers upholding an intellectual commitment to issue challenging works–that the good books keep appearing. It is possible to consumerize the pleasures of books and reading, but as long as there are libraries, the cosmopolis of literacy, far-flung in space and time, remains a commons.”

-Stephanie Mills from Epicurean Simplicity, page 141
