Friday Reads: Tolstoy And The Purple Chair

Posted by

It is a gift we humans have, to hold on to beauty felt in a moment for a lifetime.
– Nina Sankovitch

I’m still reading Night Film (I’m almost done. It’s pretty great, I have to admit.), but I’m also listening to Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading by Nina Sankovitch. It’s about reading and what books mean to us, how they affect our lives. It’s weird listening to a book about reading, because listening to an audiobook is so different from reading an actual book, feeling its weight and turning the pages. But it’s a good read either way and it has made walking to and from work more enjoyable this past week.
