Our 2013 Book of the Year is Slow Reading in a Hurried Age by David Mikics.
(It was not the only book on Slow Reading released this year, I reviewed another one here.)
At the heart of this book, lie 14 rules that define the practice of Slow Reading. We offer these rules here, with brief elaborations from Mikics’s book.
(Presenting these rules in this slideshow format seems to go against the grain of Slow Reading. We do so only with the hope that this representation will entice you to immerse yourself in a slow and careful reading of the full book!)
