For decades, Hebrew Book Week has been a festive occasion for the Hebrew reading public. Reading is a pleasure that many of us embrace every day of our lives, from childhood on. Nothing can compare with the sense of discovery, enlightenment even, that we experience when we read. Reading expands our worlds beyond recognition, as we encounter continents, periods, plots, characters, sights and landscapes, peoples, cultures and more. All these are brought to our doorsteps by the books that play such an important role in our lives.
On the occasion of Hebrew Book Week 2013, we bring you two songs about the wonder of reading.
