Reading with a purpose

literatureversustraffic02

Some people spend their entire lives reading

but never get beyond reading the words on the page,

they don’t understand that the words are merely stepping stones

placed across a fast-flowing river,

and the reason they’re there

is so that we can reach the farther shore,

it’s the other side that matters.

-Jose Saramago
