Inside very clean. At one magical instant in your early childhood, that page of a book - that string of confused, alien ciphers - shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. Noted essayist Alberto Manguel moves from this essential moment to explore the 6000-year-old conversation between words and that magician without whom the book would be a lifeless object: the reader. These . pages spill over with tales of book thieves and anarchists, book burners and censors; we marvel at the women of repressive 11th century Japan, who invented their own reading material., and the African-American slaves who risked mutilation when they learned to read. Manguel lingers over reading as seduction, as rebellion, as obsession, and goes on to trace the never-before-told story of the reader's progress form clay tablet to scroll, codex to CD-ROM. 0.500 gr.
