Will Schwalbe’s Books for Living: a Reader’s Guide to Life was published earlier this year, five years
after The End of Your Life Book Club. Back in January, I wrote about how Books for Living had
helped me to slow down, make time for the important stuff, and ask others more often, “What are you reading?”
To start addressing this, I recently read – and absolutely loved – Elephant Moon by John Sweeney and The North Water by Ian McGuire. Both books reminded me of how much I enjoy (and need) regular doses of fiction.
Reading fiction is how I wind down, escape from work and worries, and become a better me. The business and self-improvement books I can sometimes gravitate towards don’t cut it.
To help keep this in mind, I’ve compiled some of the many quotes I highlighted, underlined, and applauded in Will Schwalbe’s Books for Living. I hope that other keen readers will enjoy these too.
