Reading for pleasure

James W. Hall (via WSJ.com) and the power (and pleasure) of reading…dare I say it…BESTSELLERS:

That’s the beauty of reading for pleasure.  When you turn the final page and shut the book, that heady blend of sadness and joy you feel can quickly ripen into a hunger for more.  I like to think of bestsellers as a gateway drug.  Once you’ve found one you love, books will forever hold a special allure. All comers welcome.  No special education required.
