Some good advice for a rainy weekend in Madison from John Cotton Dana, , founder of the first library children’s room, at the Denver Public Library, pioneer business librarian, and enthusiastic collector of American art:
3. Read some more.
4. Read anything.
5. Read about everything.
6. Read enjoyable things.
7. Read things you yourself enjoy.
8. Read, and talk about it.
9. Read very carefully, some things.
10. Read on the run, most things.
11. Don’t think about reading, but
12. Just read.
and, in case you’d rather stare at bookshelves instead of reading . . .
