> if that one book you read is some deeply philosophical work of art

Not impressive either. You're not going to gain very much from it unless you already have a thorough grounding in the subject - which you'd have to get from reading other books. And once you do have a thorough grounding, it shouldn't take you an entire year to read and understand. Philosophy is hard, but it's not that hard.

yeah, that was kind of my point. you can argue the hows and whats and whys of reading for days and days, you're guaranteed to come up with a bottomless pit of (un)necessary credentials and hard-to-gauge criteria, and at the end of the day (and after an eternity of arguing), the only thing that really matters is whether or not you're reading.

i guess one thing you could make a solid case for is reading comprehension.
