What We're Reading:

We know that reading is fundamental, but at J Reed Consulting we like to think it's communal as well! Our beloved ancestor bell hook agrees:

For most people, what is so painful about reading is that you read something and you don't have anybody to share it with. In part what the book club opens up is that people can read a book and then have someone else to talk about it with. Then they see that a book can lead to the pleasure of conversation, that the solitary act of reading can actually be a part of the path to communion and community.
