Books and reading. Reading and books.
Intertwined you might think.
Essential you might think.
Not so if you were King Louis XIV.
"I see no point in reading", he said

Then there is Francis Bacon who devoured words.
"Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed,
and some few to be chewed and digested.", he said.

For those in the Arts where the style of objects
needs precision when writing, the following books
offer precision when reading.
