Stephen Greenblatt was recently profiled in the Boston Globe by Amy Sutherland, a writer who interviews other writers and artists about their likes, dislikes and habits when it comes to reading. The weekly "Bibliophiles" column has featured such prominent writers as Amy Bloom, Michael Lewis, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and others such as actor Nick Offerman and singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash.

In the profile Greenblatt discusses what he is currently reading, books that hold emotional meaning, and titles that have stuck with him over time.

"You can predict that some books will give you a thrill, but you can’t predict the books that will hit you hard. It is a little bit like falling in love."
