Thank you for posting that.

I liked his comment on how readers engage with what has been written by the writer.

"What the reader is doing, then, is translating the words on the pages into his or her own private, imaginary lexicon, according to his or her interests and needs and levels of comprehension."

A fascinating piece, Maggie. Thanks for the link. Where books are concerned, the author has it right: it takes two to tango. Best wishes. Neil
