I like the idea of slowing down when reading. Especially when I get away from the everyday workaday world. There are simply some works that are worthy of letting the words and the feelings and the experience and the novelty glide, ever so slowly through our mind and consciousness. Drinking them in so to speak, to savor every idea or nuance completely. I have been doing more of that over the last few months with enjoyable results.

Slow Reading in a Hurried Age is a practical guide for anyone who yearns for a more meaningful and satisfying reading experience, and who wants to sharpen reading skills and improve concentration. David Mikics, a noted literary scholar, demonstrates exactly how the tried-and-true methods of slow reading can provide a more immersive, fulfilling experience. He begins with fourteen preliminary rules for slow reading and shows us how to apply them. The rules are followed by excursions into key genres, including short stories, novels, poems, plays, and essays.
