Nora Ephron, Reader

The late writer and producer Nora Ephron will be much missed, if for no other reason than she was an outspoken fan of the art of reading. Our favorite quote from her fro her book “I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman”

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
