Consider the following sentence:


"James Joyce, who had begun to lose his eyesight, saved his reading of Lorelei Lee."



Does 'to say one's reading' mean that they didn't read at all?

??? No idea. ???

I found a lesser used definition of "save" in a dictionary, though:

Avoid, lessen, or guard against.

I take that to mean that Mr. Joyce did not read a lot of Lorelei Lee at a time. He only read a little and then rested for a while. I could be wrong, though, because I'm not very familiar with this use of "save".

Christine Christie"James Joyce, who had begun to lose his eyesight, saved his reading of Lorelei Lee."

That does not make sense. Either the writer made a mistake, you copied it wrong, there is more to the sentence, or some combination of those. What happened in reality was that Joyce had to limit his reading to keep his eyesight a little longer, but he nevertheless used some up to read Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
