Reading well...

Ever since a battered copy of Peter and Jane was thrust into our hands and we were told, ‘This is reading, I think you’re going to like it’, who has dared question that glorious gift? Ah, but as much as we adore absorbing words, without knowing why we do, we can never do it better. Blindly buying the next bestseller is bad form indeed, and as Robert Louis Stevenson suggested, “If a man reads very hard…he will have little time for thought.” Maybe reading is just the intellectual equivalent of Wii tennis; much better to get out in the open air and have a proper game, no? Balancing the books can be tricky, but, as ever, the School of Life is on hand to help weigh up our options in a handy ‘How To’ class format; attempting to get to the very heart of our need for narrative, and make sure we are not only well read, but read well too…
