…Effective reading is like driving a car…we have long forgotten the nervousness we felt and the huge amounts of information we had to store in our minds when learning to drive. Reading is similar to driving in that the brain, from processing pages and pages of texts, develops a variety of strategies and connections that facilitate efficient comprehension (Jeff Zwiers)
