The Art of
Reading
Bruce Thomas, Britannica Book of English Usage © 1980 Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.
Aggressive and adventurous reading is essential to fluency. We should read articles,
books, and newspapers that we might ordinarily pass by. We should occasionally
read the dictionary itself rather than only
referring to it for a definition. We should
make reading a daily habit, an interstitial
activity. We all have interstices of time
when we can, but often do not, read: while
taking public transportation to and from
work, waiting for appointments, standing
in the supermarket line, or before going to
sleep at night.

“Read not to
contradict and
confute, nor to find
talk and discourse,
but to weigh and
consider.”
Sir Francis Bacon
A lawyer, statesman, philosopher, and master of the English
tongue, known for his power as a speaker in Parliament.
