What we see when we read by Peter Mendelsund

This is a very interesting book which I have not finished. I’m trying to figure out if I should spend the time and concentration it needs or just skim. What would Peter do?

One bit of advice I loved was –

(One should watch a film adaptation of a favorite book only after considering, very carefully, the fact that the casting of the film may very well become the permanent casting of the book in one’s mind. This is a very real hazard.)

Too true!
