CRS is a website focused on providing resources to help you transform yourself into a more active reader; a reader who knows how to pay attention; who knows how to ask questions and get answers; who knows how to criticize a book without being disputatious or contentious; who knows the difference between their personal opinions and knowledge; and who, at the heart of it all, knows how to read a book for understanding.

With articles covering not just reading but all areas of rhetoric and practical communication, we hope that you’ll find this site a useful resource in making your intellectual life – as well as all other areas of your life – a lot more  fulfilling, easy to grasp, and fun.
