For instance, Joseph Paul, studying political science at Pennsylvania State University, wants to read Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand: “I am new to Objectivism and would like to expand my knowledge of the subject…. I have been studying various aspects of libertarianism for years: from Mises, Hayek, and Rothbard, to Jefferson, Madison and Ron Paul. Recently, I stumbled upon Atlas Shrugged. It seems that I have missed a whole new way of thinking and I just don’t know it yet.”

Charley Sabel, a student at the College of Law in London, wants to read Atlas Shrugged: “I have been told so many times to read Rand and that I would love her, and now finally finished my exams and have plenty of time to read what I want to! I have a general interest in politics and philosophy. but for me every day is a school day and continued learning is what makes a good, erudite and well rounded human being.”

When a student you sponsor finishes their book, they’ll be prompted to let you know what they thought of it. Arda Akcicek, studying political science at Hacettepe University in Turkey, read Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand and said: “I just discovered that how much we need the idea of ‘I’ to free the world.”

Or there’s Carlos Buitrago, who studied economic global affairs at George Mason University, and read Atlas Shrugged: “A truly inspirational book, and more relevant than ever. Freedom is what allowed the world to flourish, not central planning and plunder. No one has the right to take from one person to give it to the next.”
