"Books Bring Us Together"

There are always pro-Moscow/pro-Russia/public interest billboards scattered around the city... I really like this one.

How can people come up with such clever ideas? Love it.

That is very interesting one. It has several meanings for me and speaks to me personally in several ways.
First is the common reference, like Little Red Riding Hood syndrome, it is common reference, most of us have the same image when we hear these words. Or at least we hope so.
Second is the books you read with your children. Naturally, the first books they ever heard were the books I read to them - so in some sense, we read the same books.
Third is the Harry Potter, the last books at this point, my children and I read together (mostly just at the same time in different places in this world).
And the third, and the most disturbing to me, do we take the same lesson from the same book? Our interpretation may be so different, that unless we discuss it, we will never know what the other person really thinks about the story. Like in Alice in Wonderland - what is the moral of this story?
