i am a chronically slow reader. which is interesting, because i have always been an avid reader, i am just really, obnoxiously slow. and it is frustrating, because i can sit for hours and read and still get only a chapter or twenty pages done. this is not an exaggeration. of course, i am only that slow when reading for a class, or reading certain types of material, but it really feels like a handicap sometimes. it is not that i am bored - usually i am highly stimulated, i think about what i read, i scribble in the margins, etc. - but it ends up feeling like the more interested i am the slower i read, and then i constantly feel like i am falling short - especially when i am most engaged.
DO YOU SEE THE FRUSTRATION!?
