This brief guide argues that, in the future, books will be less precious than the time it takes to read them. It addresses how to tackle personal "must read" lists and pare them down to the books that will truly benefit their readers -- which ones to start this year, which to put on hold, and which to pull off the sagging shelves. This witty volume describes the importance of books, the way they deepen conversations, and how they create a special hold on their readers. Rather than attempting to answer the question "What should we be reading?", it encourages individuals to come up with their own answers.

Gabriel Zaid is a poet and essayist, and the founder and manager of a consulting firm in Mexico City. His literary work, social and cultural criticism, and business writings have been widely published throughout the Spanish-speaking world. He is a member of El Colegio Nacional and the Mexican Academy of Spanish Language.
