This Is Reading
  • Frank G. Jennings


The act of reading is the act of taking thought about something. The thought may be simply that you wish to be amused or frightened into comfort. It can be the thought that there is some truth to be found that waits in the printed pages. The reading of the printed page can never be the act of a “passive consumer.“ In fact it is as much a part of the creative act as the author’s writing. Where there is a reading man there can be a thinking man, and wherever he exists that part of the world can be better than it is.
