  1. 1. “Reading a book is a meditative act, but it doesn’tinvolve clearing the mind. It involves a filling, orreplenishing, of the mind. Readers disengage theirattention from the outward flow of passing stimuliin order to engage it more deeply with an inwardflow of words, ideas, and emotions. That is theunique mental process of deep reading.” Nicholas Carr, The Shallows
