Booking Through Thursday: What is Reading Fundamentally?

btt button

Suggested by: Thisisnotabookclub

What is reading, anyway? Novels, comics, graphic novels, manga, e-books, audiobooks — which of these is reading these days? Are they all reading? Only some of them? What are your personal qualifications for something to be “reading” — why? If something isn’t reading, why not? Does it matter? Does it impact your desire to sample a source if you find out a premise you liked the sound of is in a format you don’t consider to be reading? Share your personal definition of reading, and how you came to have that stance.

(Two weeks late for Reading is Fundamental week, but, well…)


Even though I spend a lot of time online, I tend to consider things reading if I can hold them in hard copy or listen to them in audio format.  I arrived at this definition because I think that most of the time I spend on my computer is for some work related or procrastination activity.
