Quite an enjoyable book. Jacobs is a gifted writer, and he explores a variety of topics related to reading with clarity and surprising depth for a short book. The sections on the kind of attention that serious reading requires were especially good, as were his discussions of the different types of reading. While those are serious topics, the joy that Jacobs takes in reading courses throughout the book, and he’s keen to remind the reader that reading for enjoyment is far more important than to “have read” to impress others.
