Books That Change The World, One Reader At A Time
What with the Internet, texting and Twitter, one can get lost and feel as though the world is moving at such a dizzying speed that you can’t keep up. Yet whenever I stumble or get confused, I can open the pages of a book and find comfort in the stories there. That’s another way of saying, “Welcome to another edition of Pacific Reader”: our attempt to cover the world of books as it pertains to Asian Pacific Americans and Asia. It’s a daunting task to cover within a limited number of pages, but we hope this sampling encourages you to stop for a second and take that book off the shelf. Happy summer reading!
