Joseph Brodsky, a Russian poet and essayist, once said, “There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” Upon reading it, I wanted to decipher his quote and reflect more on why not reading books is worse than burning them.

In the following sections, I introduce Clubhouse, an emerging social media outlet that might outdo TikTok in the coming months.
