Summary

"WHY, what harm will books do me? The same harm that personal intercourse would with the bad men who wrote them. If a good book can be read without making one better, a bad book cannot be read without making one worse. ... Here we have a definition of what we mean by" bad books:" whatever books neither feed the mind nor purify the heart, but intoxicate the mind and corrupt the heart."
