About the Book

Walking a Literary Labyrinth

Throughout the course of our lives, very rarely do we take pause to appreciate the effect of books on our lives. Whether we have a voracious appetite for reading, or do so only on occasion, we've all come across books that have touched us and that have changed us.

In Walking a Literary Labyrinth, Nancy Malone shows us how books can and do influence us on a profoundly spiritual level - and that the actual, physical act of reading puts us (whether we realize it or not) in a reflective mode akin to prayer or meditation, thus bringing us closer to a knowledge of our own selves. Guiding us through her life's journey, Malone illustrates how in reading books, we are walking through our own unique "literary labyrinth" - and on a path to a greater understanding of both our inner selves and the world around us.

Meditative, engaging and spiritual in itself, Walking a Literary Labyrinth is a wonderfully intimate account of one woman's love affair with the world of books and reading. Part autobiography, part celebration, and infused with soul-affirming passion, Malone inspires us to try to understand our own spiritual journey, one which begins and ventures on through the simple act of reading a book.
