I just graduated from college and realized that during my time in the ivory tower I lost my attention span for leisurely reading (STEM major). How do I get it back again? It would be a useful tool now that I'm unemployed with no job prospects.

Sit down and read, dumbass.

Pretty much this.

Start with short stuff and keep going.

start with some easy to read, fun books. after my first semester of computer science I tried really hard to get into reading again, and it didn't work out at first. The following helped:

- Confessions of a Mask by Mishima (probably the only novel about "the gay experience" worth reading, because it's actually a well written book)

- Selected Poems of WB Yeats (I had already liked poetry a lot, but sitting in the sunset reading Yeats' early irishy poems drove me uncontrollably into poetry again)

- V. by Pynchon (I don't like Pynchon as a novelist at all, but V. is a fun book. Don't take it as an academic one, though. It's nothing more than an intelligently written, silly first novel.)

- Dostoevsky (well, I didn't read him because I think he's almost unreadably boring, but most people seem to like him for some reason)

OP just ignore this retard, even if he recommended some decent stuff.

It's tricky, innit?

When I was in Highschool, I could read, but couldn't use formula's.

Then I went on to study physics. I stopped reading, started calculating.

Now I'm going back to doing stuff/jobs that require human interaction: I fail most courses now.

Focussing on both is hard bro
