The Art of Reading. Involvement.

"A learned man is a sedentary, concentrated solitary enthusiast, who searches through books to discover some particluar grain of truth upon which he has set his heart...A reader, on the other hand, must check the desire for learning at the outset...to read on a system, to become a specialist or an authority, is very apt to kill what it suits us to consider the more humane passion for pure and disinterested reading."

Virginia Woolf, Hours in a Library.
