“I divide all readers into two classes; those who read to remember and those who read to forget.”
William Lyon Phelps
I most definitely fall into the second category of readers here, and, to be honest, originally couldn’t conceive of anyone just reading ‘to remember’, but having spoken to some of my friends about this, apparently people really do purely read to increase their factual knowledge! Who knew?
Still, the categories can’t be quite so clear-cut as all that, surely?
