The Importance of Reading Books

To the Editor:

Re “Why You Should Binge-Read,” by Ben Dolnick (Sunday Review, May 5):

Brilliant novels are wonderful; so too are memoirs, autobiographies, biographies, political and historical nonfiction works, science and technology books, poetry collections, young adult fiction and so on. An excellent book, regardless of genre, transports one, and sparks the urge to read voraciously.

Now more than ever it’s important to learn from the past, in terms of history and politics. I devour this genre even though, when much younger, I was far more interested in other literary genres.

Books and libraries are treasures. Thank you to all the authors whose works make us think, stir emotion and make us ponder the human condition.
