According to the aforementioned book, there are two kinds of reading—reading for leisure, called Aesthetic Reading, and Efferent Reading in order to gain information. Efferent readers read for the purpose of the facts they will learn, while aesthetic readers read for the reading experience, making it easier for them to “connect emotionally. One important difference between our study and previous work focusing on the relationship of stance and response is that we have designed prompts explicitly intended to induce readers to adopt a more efferent or a more aesthetic stance prior to reading and again immediately before completion of an essay response task. Aesthetic intuition is a product of the integrated brain, distributed across many parallel circuits. It is not analyzable in the way one analyzes an automobile, whose .

). To be able to distinguish between institutionalized routineconversations and conversations that seem to engage the students in a more activecosmopolitan meaning making, the continuum of efferent and aesthetic-reflectiveexperiences, taken from Rosenblatt’s studies of reading, has been suggested.
In this article, we identify one such reading event, termed reading-for-the-writer, and analyze the specific point it occupies on an efferent-aesthetic continuum, a continuum that we view as more three-dimensional than linear and that includes both reader stances and writer stances.
