Steve Almond, On Reading

"The only reason I stopped being a bored, boring, self-regarding nincompoop is because I started reading. This was in my twenties. Up till then, I've been a standard issue screen zombie. But reading implanted the radical notion that I had an actual, you know, internal life, one that might be reached directly via acts of imaginative engagement. My life has been a lot less wretched, and lot more honest, since."

{Steve Almond's latest book is Rock And Roll Will Save Your Life (Random House). For more information, please visit his website
