Reading is, by definition, a solitary act, and our society tends to look askance at those who pursue their pleasures in solitude. But 25 years from now I predict a rediscovery of the book as we know it. Suddenly people will be saying of books: how portable, how compact, how direct, how cost-effective, how intimate, how blessedly silent, how vivid, how enduring, how interactive, how revolutionary!
– Quote from the Vancouver Village in 2000 by Carol Shields (1935-2003)
