"The books that will move you, inspire you, make you cry, make you think, make you laugh. Even if you read them in high school or college, you'll have a different perspective on them no that you're Out in The World."
Your Brain on Books: "As soon as some of us start thinking about a book we want to read, our brain triggers the release of dopamine into our bloodstream... instantly anticipating the pleasure you will garner from reading the book.

Then, as long as the text meets your expectations, it will bring forth a rush of comfort, joy, satisfaction, and a whole range of other pleasurable feelings." - Galinda Mindlin, Don Durousseau, and Joseph Cardillo, Your Playlist Can Change Your Life
