I think "reading and study" (what others say/write) and "thinking for oneself" can and should be two very different things, especially in reference to something like Theosophical studies.  The way I tend to see it, Theosophy is ideally/basically all about thinking for oneself, to the extent that what others think/write (including HPB, Masters, Gods, Goddesses or whoever) is essentially beside the point.  In other words, I don't see how anybody except oneself can think for oneself, basically.   Not that there's a shortage of opinions out there about how one should specifically define "thinking for oneself" (so I wouldn't want to even try to define it for anybody except myself).
