Christiaan De Beukelaer, in a [nice essay for *Times Higher Ed*]( on over-publication driven by competitive careerism:

> The importance of reading brings up the paradox of writing: the more we collectively write, the less we’re collectively able to read. Because the more time we individually spend writing, the less time we individually have to read.


> At the risk of tanking my own career, I am trying to listen and read much more. Which means I may publish little in the future, but hopefully just enough
