The downside of speed-reading
I note that although Tyler often posts “the best sentence I read today”, it’s invariably interesting and/or provocative, as opposed to simply being a really good sentence. When you read fast and don’t subvocalize, do you start to miss the art of constructing or even just appreciating beautiful sentences? Would a speed reader, for instance, ever be able to write a book like U&I? These are genuine questions, by the way: while I read quite quickly, I don’t speed-read, and I do subvocalize.
