    Title: History of Reading

    At one magical instant in your early childhood, the& page of a book-that string of confused, alien ciphers-shivered into meaning, and at that moment,& whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a& reader. Noted essayist and editor Alberto Manguel& moves from this essential moment to explore the& six-thousand-year-old conversation between words& and that hero without whom the book would be a& lifeless object: the reader. Manguel brilliantly covers& reading as seduction, as rebellion, and as obsession& and goes on to trace the quirky and fascinating& history of the reader's progress from clay tablet to& scroll, codex to CD-ROM.
