As Steve Allen writes in his introduction to Meeting of Minds: "I love to read...I perceive the magic, wondrous power of reading, and it disturbs me that many others do not share this insight." Like Mr. Allen, I feel much compassion for the many who can read but remain illiterate because they disregard the beckoning of words which often say more on paper than actions and deeds can accomplish. Life to the greedy is power; to the angry is battle; and to the lover is a blushing rose. But to those of us who love to read, literature is reality, a never-ending search for the identity of man. What better way can an individual find meaning in his life than through experiencing and sharing his expressions with another who may have lived hundreds of years ago?
