Evolution of a Reader

"I envy the way my oldest son reads, stretched out on the living room couch, all of a sudden this year taking up most of three cushions. Watch his face: his lips move, his eyebrows raise and lower in drastic measures, he smiles, winces, gapes and falls still all in a mere breath.
He practices the clich̩ Рhe devours books. But, even better, the books devour him."

You'll devour this essay over at The Millions.
