In my seminar, we have to write a final paper on anything that has to do with the class (What makes a good life?). I have decided to write my paper on books and reading. What makes a better life, right? I'm really excited about it and I think I can easily write 20 pages on books. It's basically just a philosophical paper, so I can do pretty much anything I want with it. Questions my essay will likely tackle:
- Why are books good?
- Why do we enjoy books?
- What makes a good book? Why are some genres considered "better" than others?
- Why do we still read when we have new media that is easier to access (tv, movies)?
- Why do some people read a lot while others will barely read a book in their adult lives?
