i love readiing but i must say i really hate this multitasking technology. you check your email, play games, text people, call people, watch video, facebook twitter (not me, i despise all social media) etc all within an hour. i find i cant focus on reading a book for a good solid hour or more. im lucky if i can focus 40 minutes on any given task in my free time. i used to be able to sit down and read for 2-3 hours easily. id fininsh 300-400pg novels in 2-3 days. now im lucky to get an hours reading within 3 days. the worst part is that i want to read the books but i cant shake off the feeling to multitask. listening to music when reading helps.
i read one of the LOTR trillogy books within 3 days another within 4 days. another within a week. i used to be so fast at reading when my contact with computers and technology was a bare minimum ie school stuff. that was when i was in highschool.
i wouldnt be surprised if others have such an easy time focusing on one task when society is bombarded with such large amounts of data and details to distract you every few seconds.
