"An unliterary man may be defined as one who reads books once only. There is hope for a man who has never read Malory or Boswell of Tristram Shandy or Shakespeare's Sonnets: but what can you do with a man who says he 'has read' them, meaning he has read them once, and thinks this settles the matter?"
-- C.S. Lewis, "On Stories"
