Hmm …

… Reading Is Forgetting by Tim Parks | NYRblog | The New York Review of Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

If "our reactions to a book on first reading are irrelevant," then there doesn't seem much point to reviewing, and maybe Parks would agree. To borrow from the motto of the Abbey of Theleme, one should read as one will.
