Luckily book lovers and video game creators are working to make those questions more accessible. I had the chance to look at Quote, a video game created by one such group of people, and am excited to share it with you all.

So if you like video games, books, or thinking about the role that information plays in society, head over to my article “Quote: A Video Game for Book Lovers” at Book Riot to find out more and see the game trailer.
