Episode #20: Go Away, I’m Reading — The Solitary World of Books

Does reading fiction really make us more empathetic, or does losing ourselves in a good book making us antisocial? On this episode of The Book Project, Sarah explores the solitary world of our favourite hobby, from the evolution of reading silently to the social benefits of escaping into a good book.
