To Clarey Rudd, owner of Bank of Books, a book can hold an immense amount of value.

“Books, whether they’re antiques or new, can hold so much worth from just their content alone,” he said. “You can travel the world just by reading a book, or teach yourself something; a lot can be done by self-teaching.”

Speaking in short and wispy phrases, Rudd knows first-hand the value of books when it comes to self-teaching, as he’s using them to learn how to speak after undergoing a laryngectomy.
