The Devil's Dictionary:    

Definition of Reading

  READING   noun
The general body of what one reads.  In our country it consists, as a rule, of Indiana novels, short stories in 'dialect' and humor in slang.
  We know by one's reading
  His learning and breeding;
  By what draws his laughter
  We know his Hereafter.
  Read nothing, laugh never --
  The Sphinx was less clever!

Jupiter Muke
