Are there differences between reading for information and reading for meaning?


There are different reading strategies determining by purpose. As an author writing an article, story, or book(s) does one consider those differences of reading strategies? I ponder while seeking others views. Thank you for reading and any feedback :-)

    I agree Venkatachari. It does vary. From a personal perspective over the last say 20 years I have read with the strategy for information and not for simple pleasure of reading. I find pleasure reading a challenge for me. I hope to read more fiction.

    Strategies for reading are important I agree. I have a couple of different strategies learned from a Power Reading class taken a couple of times. I would like to take that class again as a tune-up for self improvement.

    Thank you for sharing that information Micheal. That is valuable as I wish to learn Swedish and find it a challenge. I would think the culture, history, and how the language evolved would be very valuable with great worth when learning a language.
