    This is a great little reader. Leave it in the bathroom and snap up a page or two each time. No long articles or quotes. Interesting snippets from all genres of literature, usually from infamous writers or their writings. Not much interpretation at all. Just read and think. For the price, this is an incredibly inexpensive way to familiarize yourself with the written word throughout mankind's history.
