10 Reasons Why We Stop Reading A Book

Surveys and consumer reports also suggest that the sensory experiences typically associated with reading—especially tactile experiences—matter to people more than one might assume. Text on a computer, an e-reader and—somewhat ironically—on any touch-screen device is far more intangible than text on paper. Whereas a paper book is made from pages of printed letters fixed in a particular arrangement, the text that appears on a screen is not part of the device's hardware—it is an ephemeral image. When reading a paper book, one can feel the paper and ink and smooth or fold a page with one's fingers; the pages make a distinctive sound when turned; and underlining or highlighting a sentence with ink permanently alters the paper's chemistry.

People ask if I'm actually reading all these books, and how I can possibly find the hours. I don't mind the question. I enjoy the give and take, and the talk of immersing oneself in a story. And anyway, there's plenty of time. At the doctor's office, the airport, in line at the DMV. I knew a guy who could finish half a novella in the shower, don't ask me how.

If you are reading a book that deals with a subject an expert might help them better understand, invite one in. Try the Veterans of Foreign Wars, for example, if reading about war.
