[Milton-L] Reading practices and empiricism

Hello,

Can anyone put me on to books or articles that discuss how early modern
practices of reading texts helped scientists to develop their
observational skills? That is, how reading the book of God (or any other
book, for that matter) enabled Renaissance scientists to examine and
interpret the book of Nature? 

Apologies if this is an off-list query -- I wasn't sure when I composed
it.  

Thanks,
