LR Mole Any other speed-readers in the house? (40) RE: Any other speed-readers in the house? 16 Jul 01


I'm a quick reader, but there are things I just can't be caught by.Some sort of instinctive switch gets thrown and I can only rarely throw it back. This happened to me with a lot of Sci-fi: I just couldn't settle in. On the other hand, there are books I'm really never NOT reading: ones I love so much I'm always ready for a few pages of .And, yeah, technical stuff drives me out. It's as if the mental voicepainter that turns prose into experience suddenly goes drony and dead, and I just can't care about it. And sometimes in sleep I can hear rhythms of the prose I've been reading but not words, like awareness of a conversation on the other side of a wall. Odd.
