My reaction after a Facebook discussion:
I’d rather have life’s live experiences over being “well read” but I also like books more than people sometimes. I think the article makes a good point between culling and surrendering. Culling you choose to neglect some aspect of reading,… you choose not to read those things. Where in surrendering, you know that you can not read everything you are supposed to so you don’t try to…you get to read what you want not to attain being well read but just because you want to read. Your own “well read” is however you define it. Life is about choosing & priorities – even in your reading, you have to choose what is the best and most important for you.
