TED TalksFor anyone who hasn’t yet had a chance to watch the video of Lisa Bu’s beautiful TED Talks lecture about the power of books, and the life-altering affect they had on her own life, give yourself the gift of clicking on the video below; it’s just six minutes and 17 seconds long.

I don’t know if any of you will feel the same way, but the next time I happen to find myself stuck in a reading rut, I plan to sit back and give this video another close look. (Lisa Bu, by the way, is TED’s content distribution manager. Her website and blog can be found here.)
