´This story, like so many stories, begins with a gift. The gift, like so many gifts, was a book...´ So begins the essay by Robert Macfarlane that inspired this collection.

In this cornucopia of an anthology, you will find essays by some of the world´s most beloved novelists, nonfiction writers, essayists and poets.

´You will see books taking flight in flocks, migrating around the world, landing in people´s hearts and changing them for a day or a year or a lifetime.

´You will see books sparking wonder or anger; throwing open windows into other languages, other cultures, other minds; causing people to fall in love or to fight for what is right.

´And more than anything, over and over again, you will see books and words being given, received and read - and in turn prompting further generosity.´

Published to coincide with the 20th anniversary of global literacy non-profit, Room to Read, The Gifts of Reading forms inspiring, unforgettable, irresistible proof of the power and necessity of books and reading.

Inspired by Robert Macfarlane
