From What…Me Sober? comes this encouraging little passage on taking readings in bite-size portions, rather than take-no-prisoners sessions that seem to dominate traditional meetings.
I read a few pages at most, stopping at what seems a reasonable point. Sometimes I read only a few paragraphs; on one occasion, only a couple of sentences. I find that I’m getting far more out of the basic text of one of my fellowships, for example, than I ever got when reading a chapter at a time.
Ironically, read the whole thing. This is good stuff from one of my favorites.
