What's it about?

Have you ever gone on about a favorite book, only to have your friend awkwardly point out that they didn't at all enjoy the reading it themselves? How can the same book make people react so differently? It all boils down to how our perception of texts is influenced by our knowledge, life experiences, and even our mood! There's one more simple thing that can make our experience of books different—the way we read. This collection will introduce you to the history, mechanisms, and importance of reading as well as different ways to enjoy and experience reading.
