  4. 4. Windows, Mirrors, & Sliding Glass Doors Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop “Books are sometimes windows, offering views of worlds that may be real or imagined, familiar or strange. These windows are also sliding glass doors, and readers have only to walk through in imagination to become part of whatever world has been created or recreated by the author. When lighting conditions are just right, however, a window can also be a mirror. Literature transforms human experience and reflects it back to us, and in that reflection we can see our own lives and experiences as part of the larger human experience. Read, then, becomes a means of self- affirmation, and readers often seek their mirrors in books.” Bishop, R.S. (1990). Mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors. Perspectives, 6(3), pp. ix-xi.
