How to Read A Book

                                                            -- Mortimer Adler

I read books for years before discovering this gem, written in 1940. The book is entitled -- get this -- How To Read A Book. Author Mortimer Adler prepared the collection Great Books of the Western World..   I had never though much about it but, as he points out, reading a book is like having a conversation with the author. In this work, Adler and Charles Van Doren help us to become real readers. What is a "reader?" Here is what they say:

    "By readers, we mean people who are still accustomed, as almost every literate and intelligent person used to be, to gain a large share of their information and understanding of the world from the written word." (p. 3)
