    All about "heavy"

    I understand the meanings of "heavy rain, heavy snow, heavy fog, heavy frost, heavy smoke, heavy fire, heavy cold, heavy traffic, heavy sleep, heavy smoker/drinker". But I dont understand what "heavy reading" is?
    Can anybody tell me about that? Thanks.

    It can be a lot of reading or some very difficult reading, difficult in the sense of mind bending.

    Re: All about "heavy"

    Hi albertino,

    There is another shade of meaning.

    heavy reading = dull reading

    This book is heavy reading.

    heavy style, heavy type of wit, heavy mind, heavy of thought, heavy author, heavy writer, heavy book, heavy poem, heavy play.

    Regards.

    V.

    Heavy reading as in reading the classics, philosophy, law texts, etc as opposed to light reading (novels, newspapers)
