Others on Reading

I just read a wonderful article in The Chronicle of Higher Education: "On the Pleasures (and Utility) of Summer Reading."

In it, author Rachel Toor (who is an assistant professor of creative writing at Eastern Washington University) shares what she reads and why she reads what she reads. She and I seem to have the same general philosophy on reading. What I liked most about the article is that she writes about the importance of taking a break from the kind of books we feel like we should be reading and read for pleasure.
