we love books..png

WHY THIS BOOK is a persistent love letter to books written by the readers who cherish them. Once a week we'll share a single essay about someone's (maybe even yours) favorite book and send it directly to your inbox, a refreshing break amidst the clutter of email promotions and notes from your boss. All for the love of reading.
