My weird reading habits and the internet
I spend a lot of time on the internet.
Too much time, I think.
I’ve become used to reading blog posts instead of books.
My attention span has narrowed, and I just want to pick up information quickly, without taking the time to savor an author’s words.
This makes me sad, because I just love words!
For example, I’ve been trying to finish “The Pillars of the Earth” since June.
It’s a good book, but
506 991 pages long (I’m on page 486 right now).
I’ll read a chapter, then put it down so I can spend time blogging.
I’ve read a number of other books since June, just cannot seem to finish Pillars of the Earth.
It’s a good book, and I want to finish it so I can read the sequel “World Without End.”
So I guess that I’ll stop blogging right now and get reading!
