    Enhancing Your Reading Skills

    In this week’s Study Guide, we’re going to talk about how to read. Now some of you may be thinking, “Dude, I already know how to read. I’m reading this right now!” I hear ya. What makes a reader a good one is not the ability to merely discern words on a page, though, but rather the ability to extract central meanings from them. This isn’t always easy. As esteemed reader and writer Thoreau said, “To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any other exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object.”
