I get this question all the time: how are you able to read so many books? And, since I keep answering it over and over, I thought I would share the answer en masse here. First, I have been reading since before I can remember (under the covers, in the car, you know the drill). So, it’s just part of my routine and how I choose to spend my downtime. In fact, of late, the TV is hardly on and a show has to be really good to keep my interest. Second, it’s how I gain energy (introvert at heart, even though you’d never know it based on my life/job). It’s how I decompress – in fact, it’s hard for me to fall asleep if I haven’t read right before bed. Last, I have developed a habit of speed reading. There’s no other way to put it: I read really fast. This means that I don’t have the best memory of what I have read, but I enjoy the books nonetheless (and it’s the crux of why I started this blog in the first place – I can never remember all the books I have read and my real opinions about them if I don’t keep track in an organized way). So, there you have it. On top of all those reasons, I am pretty organized generally, which leaves some extra time (grocery store lines, baseball sidelines, etc.) when I can capitalize and read a few more pages.
