How Not to Read helps readers—make that former readers—master literature without ever needing to read another book ever again! The book includes:
• Tips for getting through anything you have to read by just reading every third word—so “Call me Ishmael” becomes simply “Ishmael”
• How to fake it through a conversation about a book you haven’t read
• How to use literary insults to make yourself sound smarter like “The only thing sadder than you is a Joycean epiphany!” or “Your Mama’s so fat, her Dewey Decimal number must be in the 521s… for Celestial Mechanics!”
