I love reading, but I really love books. I love their smell and weight, their physicality, the action of turning pages, how finite they are, in that they contain only exactly what's printed in them, and yet the potential to dream and imagine within the realm of what is printed is infinite. I love all my books, but one of my favorite is Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon. —Yesenia Padilla
