review A History of Reading A History of Reading review Æ 3 download Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Á Alberto Manguel Der Manguel brilliantly covers reading as seduction as rebellion and as obsession and goes on to trace the uirky and fascinating history of the reader’s progress from clay tablet to scroll codex to CD R. Reading is and has been for a long time a vital part of my life As Manguel points out it is a skill that once learned can t be unlearned And even dangerously it rapidly becomes automatic When you can read you just do it Your brain translates those symbols the letters into meanings in an unavoidable process That is you can t stop yourself from reading if you know the language of course any you can t stop yourself from hearing Manguel is brilliant at ascribing deepfelt meanings to the act of reading and to the love of books that comes as a conseuence For him reading contains all the multitudes of life It is dangerous it is comforting it is thrilling it is boring it is fun it is instructive it is educational it is subversive One could say borrowing from Dr Jonhson that when a man is tired of books he is tired of life For there is in books all that life can afford This is perhaps Manguel s most important point It destroys the idea that people who love books and who read a lot are merely trying to find replacements for a life they can t or refuse to have A History of Reading shows precisely the opposite A love of reading is a love of life In all its multitudes
