When I was a kid, I read A LOT. I once read a scary 300 page book and allotted myself 100 pages per night. It was pushing it because the book didn’t inspire fast reading. I finished and didn’t really like it. This may have been partly due to my silly goal. Other books I could fly through and really enjoy. Don’t push it, I learned.
So, today, my speed is slower and it’s not the be-all-end-all. But I’m fascinated by people who can go through books like a hot knife through butter and STILL really enjoy them.
Anybody out there do that? Or is it more quality over quantity for you?
In the last week, I read two books on history which consisted of many pictures, thus affording me two quick reads. I finished another short history booklet, and I’m counting that, too. So, that’s about 3.
What about you?
