From ShanghaiDaily.com: “Why read? In an electronic age, when almost everything seems to be for sale, reading is free. It has a value that cannot be made into a commodity, and its value exceeds a price tag. Gifts can be purchased, but the reading mind needs to be nourished, cultivated with good reading materials, encouraged to think, grow, imagine, and dream. It is a gift that keeps giving. Finally, we might consider the sound advice of the ancient sage, Desiderius Erasmus: ‘When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.’”Books for the Fall 2017 Semester: September: A Gentleman in Moscow, Amor Towles Have a suggestion for a future semester?
