Q:What is reading, anyway? Novels, comics, graphic novels, manga, e-books, audiobooks — which of these is reading these days? Are they all reading? Only some of them? What are your personal qualifications for something to be “reading” — why? If something isn’t reading, why not? Does it matter? Does it impact your desire to sample a source if you find out a premise you liked the sound of is in a format you don’t consider to be reading? Share your personal definition of reading, and how you came to have that stance.

(Two weeks late for Reading is Fundamental week, but, well…)

A: I don't think even I can go long winded on this one, reading is simply the act of following the letters on a page, while trying to comprehend what is being said by the words. Kids can do it, I can do it...it really is pretty simple. I am not into classifications, and hoops to jump through, yes cereal box reading is reading too!!! I am not exclusive, but inclusive when it comes to most things, why not let everybody in?!
Do you feel differently, the same?

Interesting firm view! I came to diffrent conclusions as I started from trying to understand definitions of reading
