blt Any other speed-readers in the house? (40) RE: Any other speed-readers in the house? 08 Jul 01


When I was taught to read (in the 50s), the school instruction included a line of moving text projected on the wall. As a result, and because I've always loved to read, I am a very fast reader. From attending way too much grad school, I now habitually skim books at the library before I decide to check them out. I read anything, although I definitely have moments when certain non-fiction makes me gag. I have had a run on Dorothy Dunnett novels lately (wonderful historical fiction), and I typically have at least 5 books in various states of being read--two or more in my car, several in the bathroom, one in my backpack, one or two in the kitchen, about 3 by my bedside, not counting the handy bookshelf nearby. I consider libraries (and librarians) as divine.
