Understanding the Reading Process

I recently read this review of my book on Amazon: “My only regret is that I didn't read it years ago when I first started teaching. I was hooked from the very beginning when Jan confessed that even though she had done extensive work with reading and readers going so far as to earn a Master's degree in the subject, she still was having trouble understanding the reading process. That someone so respected in the field would humble themselves and admit, in writing nonetheless, something that I too have been struggling with, made me sigh with relief. So I wasn't a bad teacher and it suddenly felt OKAY that I too didn't completely understand the reading process.”
