...and want to be productive?
Do you not feel like you are getting anything from reading? What would you do instead?
I personally feel quite productive as I'm reading because I feel that I learn something I want to know, as I do it.
I cannot read without tending to grow in verbosity and eventually I cannot contain it any longer and it results in productivity of some sort or the other. In short, appreciation results in productivity. They don't belong in mutually exclusive sets.
