Off the Shelf: three more types of reading

As a sequel to six types of reading, here are another three types. I had also planned to mention Secret Reading, Stolen Reading, Restless Reading, Abortive Reading, Fetishistic Reading, and Travel Reading – but I got frightfully distracted by all the little pressed flowers inside the pages of Dr Johnson. So I might discuss a few more types of reading next time.

Johnson's book - what a find. I can never resist bookshops of any description, and op shops which sell books are great also. Thanks for this series Ben.
I'm looking forward to the talk on "Restless Reading" - I've seen quite a bit of that in our school library!

So you had to barricade yourself in against your adoring public, eh?

Any thoughts on how you actually read a book - skimming, word for word, etc? I ask because you seem to keep up with a lot of reading, even beyond just the theology world. Do you have a set reading schedule? Location? Preferred caffeinated beverage? Do you go through spurts of theology, fiction (novel and short story), etc? I curious about these things... :) Thanks!

I don't know if I have ever recommended this before, but I would really benefit and enjoy having audio of your class lectures. If you ever record and post them I will be first to download!
