• HOW can someone read a book a day (Review piece on Hunter Davies’s book, January 6), unless the term is used loosely to cover skimming and speedreading schlocky best sellers and chick lit?

I’m lucky if can read a book a week. If I manage to read two books in a week it’s time for a celebratory schooner of Wincarnis tonic.
