How and Why We Read: Crash Course English Literature #1

In which John Green kicks off the Crash Course Literature mini series with a reasonable set of questions. Why do we read? What’s the point of reading critically? John will argue that reading is about effectively communicating with other people.

Find out with Crash Course Literature! Also, readers are empowered during the open letter, so that’s pretty cool.
