[rē-dong] SHOW IPA 🔊 ⭐


1. the action, practice or skill of a person who reads a really, really big book: 

  1. “This month the book club is readong the approximately 900-pages-long novel Bleak House by Charles Dickens.”
  2. “Oh c’mon, Mrs. Antolini, the sentences in this book have exponents for crying out loud, like it’s math or something, and they’re listed in the back next to more sentences written in an even smaller font, such tiny print that it will take me—and I’m not joking when I say this, Mrs. Antolini— YEARS to finish readong Infinite Jest!” 
  3. “Sure Melville’s Moby Dick feels like a laborious readong compared to, say, Denis Johnson’s Train Dreams, but next to George Eliot’s Middlemarch, it’s just your average reading.”
