    Abstract

    To read or not to read seems to be the great question for literary studies of our time. More specifically, in a world of abundant literary production in which it would take more than a lifetime just to read the fiction of a single year how can we decide what to read and how to read it? Three recent books by Amy Hungerford, Lee Clark Mitchell, and Nicholas Thoburn respectively have, in their own ways, turned to this problem.
