“My most important criteria is ‘Is this book meaningful and beautiful at the same time?’. There are a lot of titles that don’t pass that test. There are lot of beautiful books out there, with stories that just don’t go anywhere. Then you can lots of beautiful stories with really bad illustrations. This criteria is really important and really helps me find the right books”.
