Reading is a revolutionary act, an act of engagement in a culture that wants us to disengage. In The Lost Art of Reading, David L. Ulin asks a number of timely questions - why is literature important? What does it offer, especially now? Blending commentary with memoir, Ulin addresses the importance of the simple act of reading in an increasingly digital culture. Reading a book, flipping through hard pages, or shuffling them on screen - it doesnt matter. The key is the act of reading, the seriousness and depth. Ulin emphasizes the importance of reflection and pause allowed by stopping to read a book, and the focus required to let the mind run free in a world that is not one's own. Far from preaching to the choir, The Lost Art of Reading is a call to arms, or rather, pages.

Excerpt from The Lost Art of Reading The tendency of our time is to make reading difficult, and those who do not read are begin ning to decry the habit as a mean and degrading vice. In a current magazine a brilliant novelist has an article entitled The Vice of Reading. In another paper I find an argument controvert ing Bacon's saying that reading makes the full man. Even among men who live by writing, reading goes out of fashion. If you will permit me to relate a personal experience, I will say that while in London I am constantly impressed by the brilliance and versatility of many men of letters. Yet I find few among them who read much. A very moderately read man will be constantly humbled by the superior talents of his contemporaries, but if I may venture to say so, he will be seldom impressed by the extent of their reading.

Discover forgotten divinatory skills, and learn to read the Tarot with confidence. Not just another Tarot book, Untold Tarot presents historic styles of reading little known in the modern era. It teaches traditional ways of reading used for pre-twentieth-century decks, drawing upon older cartomantic arts such as blending and pairing cards, reading lines, and following "line of sight" to piece together untold stories according to the direction in which the characters are facing. The time to rediscover these lost skills is ripe, and the practical and personal approach presented here empowers you to read in your own fluid style and develop a full palette of skills. The book also includes a selection of card spreads drawn from traditional French and Italian sources, plus methods of reading cards based on the author's own extensive research.
