We hang an assortment of posters from publishers and other sources in our store’s restroom. None of them are for sale. They just make interesting reading. One of them is a quote from Edward Morean. It reads:
“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore a dangerous idea without fearing it will go off in our face. It is one of the few sources left where information is served up without the silent black noise of a deadline or the hullabaloo of a commercial. It is one of the few havens remaining where a person’s mind can get both provocation and privacy.”
In that regard today I received a blog post by Mickey Maudlin, the Senior V.P. and Executive Editor at HarperOne which is a division of HarperCollins. There is a recommendation for HarperOne books included in his blog, but I found it not too strident. Perhaps you will find his words something to ponder. Click here to view it.
