I try to spend a lot of time reading, but it's really not as easy as it sounds.

Hey! Oh thats nice, I can't read from computers or anything electronic, I have to feel the paper. But somehow I can't read a page or two as It always takes about 3 pages for my concentration to get started. Also, I get distracted really easily, don't know why. For ex: if I read the word watermelon on the page, I'll start thinking about watermelons and how that one time when I was eating watermelon, it dropped on my shirt, then i tried to get the stain off, but it was a tough stain so I just left it in the washing machine, oh that reminds me I have to put my clothes in the washing machine..." and so i get up and start doing that. But you see, how one word just takes me off somewhere else.
Im liking twilight and I liked it a lot till page 250 or so, and I've noticed this pattern in me, I'll like books up to page 200 or 250 and then zap, all of a sudden i lose interest because something else or some other book has caught my interest.
Right now, I'm reading twilight and 2 other books at the same time, and I've put one of them on hold, its a financial book...
Once I was stuck on this one book for about two years I'd always pick it up every 3 months and start reading again from where I'd left... but it also broke my flow..
Happy New Year. Hope 2011 brings you all the wonderful things in Life.
I noticed you added many more books, can I ask you something?
How do you find time to read so much so fast?
I really wish I read as fast as you...but I get distracted easily :( I'm still stuck on twilight for the past month or two almost... But I'm also reading another book in between, and also a third book that I left in the middle...
Thanks Elizabeth, I liked your taste as well, although I imported these books from goodreads and I've read most of them in high school but a great chunk is on my "to read list" but somehow when I imported my booklist, it marked it as read.
But yes, choke SUCKED big time and I actually read it because it was recommended by someone who worked at Caribou Coffee in atlanta...
