    I first got this book when a professor in a writing class assigned it as a text, and have been going back to it for various reasons since then. It's a great sit-and-browse book, it has excellent examples of a bunch of kinds of writing, and it is thought-provoking in many ways. My favorite entry is George Orwell's classic essay, "Politics and the English Language."

    The Norton was a brick, mostly. Sometimes I'd find a piece of chocolate between bits of mortar and it was good, but it was still a brick. 7/10.

    This 12th edition anthology has 1277 pages. I'm on page 869, so bear in mind I'm about 68% finished. I've taken this book with me on numerous vacations. The good thing about it is you can read an essay, which could be on any of the various topics covered by the various authors, and then put it down for a while, and then pick right back up on the next random essay without fear of forgetting where you left off because each essay is its own independent entity and not reliant on others around it (in [...]

    Love reading a short story in Norton or two when I sit down to read. Each chapter is a short story and not connected to the other chapters.

    I was assigned the Norton Reader for both of my English courses this year. I found a handful of the publishings to be quite boring. However, the vast majority of my writing involved veterinary medicine and were very limited articles which I could reference in my writing. If I could have used the Norton Reader in my writing, I believe I would have actually enjoyed it.

    This book is filled with excellent examples of the creative nonfiction form and its many variations. Somebody important said that if you want to write something aptly, you should read at least 100 examples of it. By time I've finished this, I'll be ready to write an essay.

    Read most of the essays and stories for school. While several in the spiritual section didn't appeal to me, I found this to me ovar all an excellent compilation of great works. My favorite essay was Get a Knike, Get a Dog, but Don't Get a Gun and Thinking as a Hobby as second runner up
