In a Chronicle of Higher Education article called Time for Reading, Lindsay Waters suggests we're reading too fast and that this is a factor in present day reading problems. "Unless one can digest the letters on the page fast enough, one cannot comprehend what one is reading," he says. "But once one learns how to read, there is a speed beyond which one stops reading in a truly effective way."
I was immediately attracted to this article because I'm so often frustrated because I can't read more and more and more. The article doesn't tell me how to deal with that problem, but suggests that maybe I don't have a problem at all.
One of the things I liked about the article is that it deals with reading at both the college and grade school levels. Though it did bring back college anxiety about getting through all those books every semester.
