“1,000 Books to Read Before You Die: A Life-Changing List, by the American author James Mustich, is best understood less as a book, more as a kind of imaginary book shop: a place of pleasurable discovery, open to readers of all tastes and ages, where you can browse at will – perhaps emerging, hours later, clutching a volume you didn’t even know existed when you walked in. 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die is more than a compendium, it’s a celebration of the life-affirming, life-expanding act of reading. “The question of what to read next is a prelude to who to be and how to live”, says Mustich. “In an age where most of our experiences are ephemeral and mediated through digital means, reading allows us to immerse ourselves in our own thoughts and imaginations. What I hope is for people to open books and lose themselves in them. That’s how we discover important things about ourselves and the world.”
