“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss

Reading is described as a complex interaction between the text and the reader, which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community, which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practices, development, and refinement.

Things to consider prior to reading:

Where are you when you read? Do you prefer lying on your sofa or sitting in a lawn chair under your favorite shade tree? Is there an umbrella-laden-drink in your hand or coffee with a twist of flavored cream? Lying down or sitting up, oftentimes it depends on the environment and source of reading material. Reading formats have changed of late. Many people own a handheld electronic reading device where they download books while many still depend on a desktop computer. There are people, whom only read from a paper book because they enjoy bringing the book to their nose for a good whiff. They also like to feel the pages, which collect oils from their fingers and begin the yellowing process. There’s something about an aged book. All methods are preference. Individual. A person’s choice.

Me – I prefer reading to the sound of rain hitting the protective cover above my head, which wouldn’t be there at all except to protect the Mac I hold dear. I’ll be in Portland, Oregon for the next ten days. Join me with a crowbar.
