Share What Makes a Good Reader
2013-1-29 08:57
by Maria Popova “A good reader, a major reader, an active and creative reader is a rereader.” “All attempts at gaining literary polish must begin with judicious reading,” H. P. Lovecraft famously advised aspiring writers. We’ve already seen that reading is a learned skill and an optimizable technique, and that non-reading is as important an intellectual choice as reading itself, so it follows that reading, more than the mere monolithic act of ingesting text, comes ...

    Interesting.  I have reread some books the same as watching a movie a second or third time you get something different out of it.  I knew that I would have to reread the last book I read  "Myths and Ledgends of China"   (an English translation) as it was packed full of information that would be hard to absorb with only one read.  I recommend it to anyone either learning English or on an extended stay in China.  I downloaded it from the  internet to my ereader.
