What is CDR?
The Centre for Deep Reading is dedicated to the creation of temporary autonomous zones for intensive reading.

What is Deep Reading?
Deep is a troublesome word to place in front of the word reading. There's legimate reason to be concerned about people who fetishize depth. James Cameron, for example.

What we mean by deep reading is close reading is immersive reading. What we mean by deep reading is cousin to what we mean when we say difficult pleasure.

Deep reading is curiosity followed so far that it has become serious exploration.
