Henry Miller Quote: “To squeeze every drop of juice out of a book is an art…”

Henry Miller had this great quote in his essay, “To Read or not to read,” that I loved as I’m reading through a whole lot of books right now:

“To squeeze every drop of juice out of a book is an art, almost as great an art as writing itself. When one learns it, one book does the work of a hundred. It is not the so-called bad books whose influence I deplore as much as the mediocre ones.”
