Embodying (Re-)Reading: the Material and Social Engagements of Nostalgic Leisure Reading Practices

This paper utilises the theory of practices to describe and explain some of the features of the phenomenon of leisure reading within the context of a re-reading case study. It finds that leisure reading is an embodied practice that occurs within a complex network of material and social engagements.
