內容簡介


《最後的讀書會》暢銷作家威爾.史沃比新作──
藉由26本書,學習如何活著!

繼在《最後的讀書會》紀錄與癌末母親最後的雙人讀書會後,新作同樣以個人經驗搭起與書本之間的橋梁,探討閱讀的力量……


在作者人生扮演重要角色的書籍,涵括古今中外,從經典、大眾、青少年、兒童文學到非文學類圖書,從《生活的藝術》到《奧德賽》,從《關於跑步,我說的其實是……》到《列車上的女孩》,從《小王子》到《蝴蝶夢》,從《一九八四》到《塊肉餘生錄》,從《奇蹟男孩》到《一家之鼠》……在對的時間點遇見對的書,可能改變人生。

作者就像與朋友聊天般,以輕鬆的口吻談論書籍與人生。不管是將《生活的藝術》視為人生哲學的準則、從短篇小說〈抄寫員巴托比〉中學習放棄、從《列車上的女孩》學習識人,或從《蝴蝶夢》看見嫉妒的殺傷力……他從個人經驗中,反思書籍如何呼應現代世界的各種挑戰,在動盪不安的時代裡,得到指引與解答。

閱讀不僅是娛樂,更幫助我們了解世界、思考重大議題、進而成為更好的人。作者分享與書本相遇的故事,也訴說因書籍而建立的緣分。閱讀好書,並與他人分享、對話,莫過於人生最美好的事情之一。

From the author of the best-selling The End of Your Life Book Club, an inspiring and magical exploration of the power of books to shape our lives in an era of constant connectivity.

'I'm on a search and have been all my life: to find books to help me make sense of the world, to help me become a better person, to help me get my head around the big questions that I have, and figure out the answers to some of the small ones while I'm at it' Will Schwalbe

Why is it that we read? Is it to pass time? To learn something new? To escape into another reality? 
For Will Schwalbe, reading is a way to entertain himself but also to make sense of the world, to become a better person, and to find the answers to the big (and small) questions about how to live his life. In this delightful celebration of reading, Schwalbe invites us along on his quest for books that speak to the specific challenges of living in our modern world, with all its noise and distractions. 
In each chapter, he discusses a particular book-what brought him to it (or vice versa), the people in his life he associates with it, and how it became a part of his understanding of himself in the world. These books span centuries and genres (from classic works of adult and children's literature to contemporary thrillers and even a cookbook), and each one relates to the questions and concerns we all share. Throughout, Schwalbe focuses on the way certain books can help us honour those we've loved and lost, and also figure out how to live each day more fully. 
Rich with stories and recommendations, Books for Living is a treasure for everyone who loves books and loves to hear the answer to the question: "What are you reading?"

David Copperfield 
Rebecca
Stuart Little
The Importance of Living
Giovanni's Room

'I used to say that the greatest gift you could ever give anyone is a book. But I don't say that anymore because I no longer think it's true. I now say that a book is the second greatest gift. I've come to believe that the greatest gift you can give anyone is to take the time to talk with someone about a book you've shared. A book is a great gift; the gift of your interest and attention is even greater' Will Schwalbe
