«أيها العالَم، كلُّ شيءٍ يُلائمُني إذا لاءَمَك، وكلُّ ما هو في أوانِه بالنِّسبةِ إليكَ فهوَ كذلكَ عِندي، لا مُتقدِّمٌ لديَّ ولا مُتأخِّر. أيتُها الطبيعة، كلُّ ما تَجلِبُه مَواسِمُكِ فهو ثَمرةٌ لي؛ كلُّ شيءٍ منكِ يَأتي، وفيكِ يعيش، وإليكِ يَعود.» حينَما يُناجِي المرءُ نفسَه، فإنه يَكتبُ إليها ما لا يُعلِنُه لسِواها، ليكشِفَ الحقيقة، فيَكونَ الصدقُ عُنوانَه. في تأمُّلاتِه التي كتَبَها بعُنوانِ «إلى نفسِه» يُمثِّلُ الإمبراطورُ «ماركوس أوريليوس» رؤيةَ الفيلسوفِ حينما يكونُ إمبراطورًا؛ فبينَما كانتْ جبهةُ الدانوبِ تَضِجُّ بالحرب، عكَفَ الإمبراطورُ على تدوينِ مجموعةٍ مِنَ التأمُّلاتِ عبَّرَ فيها عمَّا يَجولُ بخاطرِه حولَ عدةِ موضوعاتٍ حياتيةٍ مُتفرِّقة، وعلى الرغمِ من أنَّه لم يُرِدْ لها أن تَخرجَ للناس، فإنها صارتْ قِبلةَ الفلاسفةِ ومَقصِدَ المُفكرِينَ والقُرَّاءِ بعدَ طباعتِها ونشرِها، ليكونَ كتابُه واحدًا مِن أهمِّ كتبِ الفلسفةِ الرُّواقية، ليس فقطْ لأنه انتقلَ بالفلسفةِ مِنَ التنظيرِ إلى التطبيق، ولكنْ لأنَّ الفيلسوفَ المؤلِّفَ حقَّقَ رؤيةَ «أفلاطونَ» في أن يكونَ الحاكمُ فيلسوفًا.

Beginning in the early 1980s, readers' advisory services were a widely discussed topic in North American public libraries. By 2005, almost every public library in the United States and Canada offered some form of readers' advisory service. The services offered have changed significantly, in ways perhaps disadvantageous to adult North American library patrons. This book provides a critical history of readers' advisory philosophy and offers a new perspective on the evolution of the service. The book analyzes the debate that shaped readers' advisory and discusses how the service has assumed its present form. The study follows readers' advisory through its three prominent stages of development, beginning with the period 1870 to 1916, when the service was still a subject of much crucial debate about its meaning and purpose. During the second phase (1917 to 1962), readers' advisory systematically committed itself to meaningful adult education through serious and purposeful reading. The book argues, however, that during the most recent phase of readers' advisory, from 1963 until the present, contemporary public libraries have turned their backs on the rich heritage of readers' advisory services by valorizing the reading of entertainment-oriented and commodified genre titles and bestsellers. Historical analysis, case studies and statistical charts augment the book's central argument.

Since the early 1990s, tens of thousands of memoirs by celebrities and unknown people have been published, sold, and read by millions of American readers. The memoir boom, as the explosion of memoirs on the market has come to be called, has been welcomed, vilified, and dismissed in the popular press. But is there really a boom in memoir production in the United States? If so, what is causing it? Are memoirs all written by narcissistic hacks for an unthinking public, or do they indicate a growing need to understand world events through personal experiences? This study seeks to answer these questions by examining memoir as an industrial product like other products, something that publishers and booksellers help to create. These popular texts become part of mass culture, where they are connected to public events. The genre of memoir, and even genre itself, ceases to be an empty classification category and becomes part of social action and consumer culture at the same time. From James Frey’s controversial A Million Little Pieces to memoirs about bartending, Iran, the liberation of Dachau, computer hacking, and the impact of 9/11, this book argues that the memoir boom is more than a publishing trend. It is becoming the way American readers try to understand major events in terms of individual experiences. The memoir boom is one of the ways that citizenship as a category of belonging between private and public spheres is now articulated.
