    Default "... you have to be a must-read ..."



    "They didn't stand out as being a must-read, and you have to be a must-read in some way."

    More: Newsweek ends 80-year print run, goes all-digital - Israel Culture, Ynetnews

    According to The Free Dictionary, must-read means "a piece of writing that should or must be read." How about the above underlined sentence. Does that mean you have to be a reader?
