Comments on "Language and the body"

I love this. One of my professors would talk about the hard work the body does just by the act of reading, that the tiny muscles in the throat are working the words out even when we're not speaking, and that the denser the book, the more physically (not to say mentally) exhausting the work of reading is.

But I like the idea that they're muscles that can be exercised. And that the act of reading gets easier the more one challenges oneself.
