Check out the most emailed New York Times article of 1/23/2014: "Reading Books Is Fundamental" by Charles M. Blow. For journalist Blow, literature gives "context and meaning to the trials and triumphs of living." In his youth, he found books to be "powerful and transformational... those books saved me: from a life of poverty, stress, depression, and isolation." About 500 readers were inspired to comment.
