Benjamin Percy has some smart things to say about reading over at The Rumpus:
Sometimes, when I’m talking books, people will say, “You’re so well read.” I wish this were true. I was on my way to becoming well read, gobbling up books like Halloween candy, when I realized it was hurting me more than helping. I am now the slowest reader you will ever meet.
Jason, if you’re the slowest reader then I must be the second slowest. Then again, perhaps we are tied.
