what kind of a reader are you?

In The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods, Antonin-Gilbert Sertillanges distinguishes four types of reading:

One reads for one’s formation and to become somebody; one reads in view of a particular task; one reads to acquire a habit of work and the love of what is good; one reads for relaxation. There is fundamental reading, accidental reading, stimulating or edifying reading, recreative reading.
