Sertillanges on Reading

"I distinguish for kinds of reading. One reads for one's formation and to become somebody; one reads in view of a particular task; one reads to acquire a habit of work and the love of what is good; one reads for relaxation. There is fundamental reading, accidental reading, stimulating or edifying reading, recreative reading."
-A.G. Sertillanges, O.P.
