The author argues that reading is alive and well in America. Millions of devoted readers support hundreds of enormous bookstores and online booksellers. Jacobs's interactions with his students and the readers of his own books, however, suggest that many readers lack confidence; they wonder whether they are reading well, with proper focus and attentiveness, with due discretion and discernment. Jacobs offers an insightful, accessible, and playfully irreverent guide for aspiring readers.

Although I liked this book by Alan Jacobs, it's really a matter of preaching to the choir. Jacobs notes that his target audience is really those who used to read for pleasure, yet now find themselves too distracted by other forms of media, too busy, or just plain unmotivated.

I loved this little book. It has no chapters, feeling like a long, extended conversation with someone in our reading “tribe”. One of the greatest pleasures of reading is connecting with others who cherish the reading life as much as we do. ( )

Lovely little narrative on the love of reading. It certainly challenged some of my knuckle-headed practices (reading from lists!) and me a lot to chew on regarding ebooks, writing in the margin, and re-reading. ( )

Caveat lector Those who have always disliked reading, or who have been left indifferent by it, may find little of interest here. But those who have caught a glimpse of what reading can give - pleasure, wisdom, joy - even if that glimpse came long ago, are the audience for whom this book was written.
