Some books are so good you want to share them with the world. Not every good book elicits this reaction, though. Some books we want to keep for ourselves; they’re too weird or personal for us to press into the hands of friends, family and strangers. But every once in a while – if you’re lucky – you’ll happen upon a book that engages your heart and your brain, that uplifts without resorting to manipulation, a book that seems to be for everyone and yet is also just for you.
