deep reading

It's a bit ironic to find Nick Carr's The Shallows, which complains-- among other things-- about a Rhodes Scholar (& philosophy major!) from Florida who never reads entire books but relies instead on the far more "efficient" surface reading facilitated by Google Books...in Google Books.

But wherever you find it, in whatever medium or format, this deserves to be read deeply end to end. Carr has read his William James on "attention."
