I love everything about books, including the smell of ink. But see this article about one reader who says he could never have read Middlemarch, War and Peace, Paradise Lost, and other weighty classics without his smartphone: http://www.salon.com/2014/05/14/war_and_peace_on_the_subway_how_your_iphone_is_saving_literature/

In my view, only by studying the humanities can we hope to escape this fundamental limitation and understand how other people live.

Lucas's bold thesis is that character is the foundation of good writing. “It is, I believe, personality above all that sets Virgil and Horace higher than Catullus and Ovid: Chaucer than Dryden; Shakespeare than his contemporaries.”

Chaucer's intention was to have his pilgrims arrive on Easter morning, after a fifty-five-mile hike through a pleasant English springtime.
