Reading like dieting

What does your reading diet look like?

Parrish advocates approaching reading material with the same uber-consciousness we approach our diet these days. Where is this sourced from? Can I trust that it’s high quality? Will putting it in my body (or brain, really) be good for me?

Read books, mostly printed, remember to digest

I remember reading Michael Pollan’s advice about eating. The tl;dr version goes something like this: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” During lent I’ve been wondering how to translate this into reading, but I guess it’s a combination of the books you choose to read, how you read them (slow down, don’t skim) and how you digest them (take notes, agree, disagree).

These are some of the books I’ll be reading during the coming weeks. Healthy fair, don’t you think? All printed, for a change.
