I read this at the suggestion of some of our librarians as we work to promote reading as a desirable leisure activity on our college campus. It is a collection of perspectives and approaches for meeting our goal and it gave us some new ideas. Some of the ideas presented in this collection can also be used at the high school level. ( )

Clearly aimed at academic library use, this book offers concepts of the slow book reading phonema that can be applied to elementary and secondary students. It trumpets the benefits of reading for content and study, and developing habits that allow pensive reading to occur. The partnerships this book suggests are welcome additions to the school library, and can help a teacher librarian explore this concept with in and outside of their library work. There are three parts to this book: Part 1 explores the benefits of slow reading concepts and how they help readers develop concrete strategies that will transfer to the reading they do online. Part 2 is about academic library work in this area, and Part 3 explores the concepts of partnering with other educational facilities. This book is a plethora of stories about successful slow reading happenings, and can inspire professionals to begin to contemplate how this might look in their setting. This concept isn't readily embraced with the technological advances of today, but definitely a good reminder of what counts. Recommended.
