Are you a fast or slow reader? I'm a slow reader and I relish what I'm reading. My girlfriend is a fast reader and she devours her books.
I read an average size novel in a few hours. It makes my wife furious. She swears that I couldn't possibly understand, let alone enjoy it.Avalon3 said:Are you a fast or slow reader? I'm a slow reader and I relish what I'm reading. My girlfriend is a fast reader and she devours her books.
I read multiple books at the same time too. I've only been doing it since I have all my books on my Kindle. Fast would be read the book in one or two days.pidgeon92 said:How do you define fast? I usually take 3-4 days to finish a book, but some books will take me literally weeks (though I do read multiple books at one time).
Sebat, I totally envy your ability to read quickly while retaining information and enjoying the ride! Speaking for myself, I don't think slow readers get more enjoyment out of a book, but I do know that I, as a slow reader, get more enjoyment out of readingly slowly rather than quickly...only because I'm just plain lousy at reading quickly.I don't understand why you think a slow reader would get more enjoyment out of a book than a fast reader.
While I agree with that statement, I have never tested my reading speed and I've never finished a book in less than day so that's why I'm basing it on days.Steph H said:I agree with Steve that number of days means little, as it depends on how much time is available to read.
