Books for Living by Will Schwalbe
In this delightful celebration of reading, Schwalbe invites us along on his quest for books that speak to the specific challenges of living in our modern world, with all its noise and distractions. The books span centuries and genres and each one relates to the questions and concerns we all share. He focuses on the way certain books can help us honour those we’ve loved, and also figure out how to live each day more fully.
