“...books were symbols of work, symbols of slog, symbols of boredom, they just didn't represent excitement to me as a child...How do I change the way young people think about what books are? If that means cracking jokes, if that means putting the interesting part at the beginning, whatever that means, I'm willing to do it if it shifts the perception around reading, I'm far more concerned with them being literate than them being ‘well read.’”
