Who here self-imposed reading books instead of shitposting or playing vydia in order to become a better person?
>tfw I don't enjoy anymore playing vydia
>tfw starting slowly to enjoy reading
Yes, I think Internet is the root of all my problems...
Pls lets escape together anon :3
I've only read 7 books in my entire life.
I usually listen to audiobooks and I'm currently listening to Infinite Jest. I got lost in thought for a while and missed a bunch and now I don't know wtf is going on so I'll have to rewind a couple of hours. That happens quite a lot for me
Ok? I usually pop my kindle on for an hour or so before going to bed.
I just finished reading "The Sun Also Rises", and am now reading "A Lion's Tale: Around the World in Spandex" cause I love biographies and wrasslin.
I usually read about 50-100 books a year, but I wasn't aware I was supposed to brag.
So yeah OP I read 78 books last year, yeah im kewl
This is actually a good book.
Would recommend "Tunnel in the Sky" by Robert Heinlein, if you like fiction. Very easy to read and it doesn't have these retarded additional love plot, which is good.
I spend at least 7hrs a week reading before bed. I can usually read 1-1.5 pages a minute (dependent entirely on what im reading).
So 70ish pages a night x 7 nights = 490pages
I like my Kindle Paperwhite. Easy as fuck to pirate to, and only cost me $60.
You get lost sometimes while reading? Or you can focus 100% on the book while you read? In addition, at what age you began to read?
>Mostly only read fantasy
>Get sucked into a series
>Spend all day reading
>Around book a day depending on length
>Have dreams about it
>Come out of it in a daze
>Takes like a week to fully recover
Wheel of Time was the worst. I had some really vivid dreams about it, and it took 2-3 weeks of intense reading where I completely lost track of time and stuff. I have trouble pacing myself.
I can never get very interested in history or philosophy books though.
I don't like reading before bed. It keeps me up, but it's made my mom unable to read without getting sleepy.
I've pirated and read more than enough books to justify my own kindle purchase.
I can almost always 100% focus on reading. I honestly focus much better reading than playing video games. I have such a vivid imagination that after a page or two I go into this weird state where I am reading, but I am almost picturing it in my head at the same time that I forget I am reading.
I've been reading since I was like 8 (Goosebumps and shit), and I guess I was always a good reader.
We had to take those Stanford Achievement Tests every year in school and I placed Post High School level every year starting in 6th grade, and got a 760 on my Reading SAT and a 650 on the Literature SAT Subject Test
I used to have that problem when i read in bed, but now I sit on the couch when I read and then go to bed and it went away
Public trackers mostly have the meme books in the top seeded lists. "How to hypnotize yourself to get a bigger dick and learn a language in 8 minutes" type shit. You could try KAT. If that doesn't work, just figure out which book you want, make sure there's an ebook version (check amazon or something) and search something like "[book title] mobi download" or "[book title] epub" and then use calibre to convert/sync it to your device. Basically the same way you would find music, assuming you don't use a private tracker.
Started reading this yesterday. I can't feel sympathy for the narrator because he whines so much while women send him love letters.
Enjoy having health problems at long run
The secret to enjoying video games is to stop jumping from game to game, especially if you play long games like JRPGs. But don't invest all your gaming into one title like WoW, when you get sick of it you'll get sick of gaming as a whole.
Me too, but at least, while I read, I feel like I'm improving myself. For sure it's placebo though.
Please be honest, why do you browse r9k?
Why do so many people think quitting vidya is essential? Surely you can enjoy it and still lead a normal life?
