Reader’s Fanfare: What I hear when I read “GR8BOOKS4MEN (TM)”

I’m big on the significance of mentally reading “out loud”.  I don’t go in for speed-reading in any way, shape, or form.  If one cannot be troubled to actually read aloud– and in Classical times, as Nietzsche points out, a person reading silently would have been thought very peculiar– one must at least sound off […]
