    you are hurt by em." Paul D looked at Sethe. "Is there history to her question?" "History? What you mean?" "I mean, did she have to ask that, or want to ask it, of anybody else before me?" Sethe made two fists and placed them on her hips. "You as bad as she is." "Come on, Sethe." "Oh, I am coming on. I am!" "You know what I mean." "I do and 1 don't like it." "Jesus," he whispered. "Who?" Sethe was getting loud again. "Jesus! I said Jesus! All I did was sit down for supper! and I get cussed out twice. Once for being here and once for asking why 1 was cussed in the first place!" "She didn't cuss." "No? Felt like it." BEL 0 V E D "Look here. I apologize for her. I'm real-" "You can't do that. You can't apologize for nobody. She got to do that." "Then I'll see that she does." Sethe sighed. "What I want to know is, is she asking a question that's on your mind too?" "Oh no. No, Paul D. Oh no." "Then she's of one mind and you another? If you can call whatever's in her head a mind, that is." "Excuse me, but I can't hear a word against her. I'll chastise her. You leave her alone." Risky, thought Paul D, very risky. For a used-to-be-slave woman to love anything that much was dangerous, especially if it was her children she had settled on to love. The best thing,

    there is a loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one's own feet going seem to come from a far-off place.

We believe in the wisdom.

What drives us

We are on a mission to make reading and acquiring knowledge fun and empowering.

There are techniques and apps that can help you read quicker and read more. But here’s the thing: It’s not about how many books you read, it’s about how much you retain from what you read.

Most people we talk to don’t have a reading strategy. They just pick up something and start reading. You want to get something out of it. You want to learn things that you can apply in your life to grow. That’s the whole point.

Of course, you can devour 15-minute summaries. But it’s doubtful you'll digest Jobs' true philosophies or actively become a successful professional overnight if you spend 15 minutes reading the key points. Such techniques are useful for dinner party conversation, but the truth is, if you really do want to re-structure your life, we’d recommend making the time to actively read the work.

Booke is meant to assist you in delving deeper into your reading experience and help you squeeze the essence out of a book (your own essence, not somebody else’s) and then take this essence regularly.
