"Dan Wilbur, Onion contributor and genius behind the hilarious time-suck website Better Book Titles, hosts a night of comedy with fellow funny people Chris Gethard, Elna Baker, and Adam Newman and shares amazing tips from his upcoming book, How Not to Read: Harnessing the Power of a Literature-Free Life. This includes speed-reading pointers like, “Just read every third word… . It’s like a Gertrude Stein poem only more comprehensible” and ways to insult people who actually read: “You’re as weak as a passive sentence written in negative form.”"
