Paul Constant: The 'Mild Pioneering Spirit' Of Shorter Reads

Jeremy Richards
04/16/2011

Let's say you have a large stack of books to get through. You could master speed reading techniques like suppressing sub–vocalization and scanning with a pen, you could build a servant robot to read and summarize the material for you, or you could just read shorter works that give you just as much satisfaction without the investment of a longer book. The Stranger newspaper's Paul Constant recommends a few selections from Amazon Kindle's Singles program — each just a couple of bucks and about the length of a novella — so you can experiment with new genres and topics in reasonable doses. Paul Constant talks with KUOW's Jeremy Richards.
