Lee, Gerald Stanley: The Lost Art of Reading, v1 15 Aug 2008

The New York Times wrote in 1903 about this book and its author:

Mr. Gerald Stanley Lee, whose book on The Lost Art of Reading deserves further consideration, is a preacher of the gospel of “fullness and leisure and power of living”; of unconscious, of “not knowing what time it is.” He is an enemy of the modern forms of culture, reading, and especially of “analysis.” His whole attitude toward modern literature—he says so himself—is grouty and snappish, a kind of perpetual interrupted “what-are-you-ringing-my-doorbell-for” attitude. His book is not really all about reading; it has a good deal in it besides about various philosophies of life. But Mr. Lee connects it all with reading by processes of his own. He has a love for unconventional expression, and likes nothing better than to say things that are calculated to shock his readers.
