    I read his book “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” when I was a teenager and thought it was “deep”. I just now see that there is a new “complete” print with a “part 4”?

    I remember the book, Gary. I’m not sure if I read it though. Was it required reading for you? — YUR

    UR – No (I assume you ask if this was a “English class assignment”). I do not remember how I came to read this. Most likely I had read reviews and it was very popular. I do remember that most books that were “required” in school were not that interesting. There were exceptions such as “Flowers for Algernon” and “Lord of the Flies” (which seems timely to me these days}.

    Great . . . short books, Gary. Probably a few of the required books that I actually read in school. All my life I have suffered with sub-vocalization. I didn’t even realize it until I started an Evelyn Woods speed reading course, sponsored by Fordham University. Midway through the course I asked the instructor why I was still lagging the class, and he said that this doesn’t work for people who read at a sub-vocal level. Great! So, I was out X number of dollars, but I finished the course anyway. I was always able to fake it in middle school and high school, because I payed enough attention during class discussions of the books to pass the exams. If I were able to read at normal levels I would be much better read than I am. I also would have gotten a lot better grades in school. That’s my main sad story!

    I have never before heard of “subvocalize” so I googled it and I am still unsure what it is. I even saw one article that said it was bad and another that said it is common. When I read or write or just think, I am “hearing” the words in my head. I am not speaking the words or moving my lips. I may look into it further some day but not today.

    Essentially, subvocal is the *ability* to read only as fast as if you were reading out loud. It is very limiting, and the main reason why I am not well-read. I enjoy what I read, but it takes way too long! — YUR
