When we read different types of books we actually read them differently. For example, when we read a cookbook we simply follow the steps in order to get to the desired result: a cake or soup or a main dish of some sort. However, a history book is read literally while a novel is read for feeling or meaning. This switching of mindsets from book to book is so natural and effortless that we are rarely aware of it but it is actually a pretty sophisticated process.
