Great article there zif.

It's always a good reminder - not that there's anything wrong persay with doing the things you mentioned - but it certainly isn't the same way of reading as it was 'that first time.' And there's just something wonderful about reading books in an "escapist" (as he put it) mentality - it does allow you to achieve that escape from the world around you & transports you into the one of which you are reading.

I've found this to be especially true with Tolkien's books.
