I did borrow 3 books from the local library, but now I only read a few pages every night before falling asleep.
I've read 2-3 books during Christmas vacations though.

It was quite a while since I read anything non-technical, and also the first time I re-read a book.
I was surprised by the fact that now, after years, instead of reading the story, I "read the writer", ie I can actually understand why the writer writes this way.
It was pretty interesting.

I don't know. Books are boring.

That book was good as fuck. For some reason when I started reading it, I didn't know what it was about and thought it was set in Japan for an embarrassingly long time.

People are more concerned about reading literature that's considered important and impressive than what they enjoy.
The last book I read was a week ago and was cheesy YA fiction.

Reading on 'mindfulness meditation' has left me unable to read. My attention is being shredded by constant self-awareness.

I forgive Buddhists what they have done to me, but I will do everything in my power to keep other people from that condition.

You recognise the generic stickers all libraries use for ease of shelving?
