In this great article, Psychiatrist and writer, Sheenie Ambardar, reminisces on her childhood library visits. Exploring the book stacks, she describes that “Seeds were planted in my eight-year-old mind that day. Maybe someday I would be a scientist too, or a writer, or a ballerina, or an astronaut. Books have that quiet, ineffable power; the power to ignite our minds and spark our imaginations. A power that neither television nor movies nor the Internet can rival.”
Ambardar focuses on how books inspired her imagination, have given her knowledge, and have enabled her to learn more about herself. Keep print alive and read! Books inspired Ambardar, maybe they will do the same for you.
