Just wondering how frequently others read. At what pace and how often? Do you practice speed reading or go at a chapter a day pace, or more so? I'm noticing many great historical reads come from the old world and Europe, which slows me down only in my attempt of better understanding and am admittedly to some degree in awe of how English and British authors write (and speak). Are there specific mantras that go through your mind in between different books, or do you simply pick up next whatever is closest? I knew of many people that once they start a book they commit to it, even if it takes them a year to read. Other people I've come across will make it a rule to finish said book within one sitting and have seen my friends dad in his arm chair for 14 hours until he is done. Anything regarding reading and books is welcome. I currently just finished reading The Adventure of Philosophy by Luis Navia which was a pleasure, and read his book called Socrates beforehand. I'm currently reading Richard Dawkins' An Appetite for Wonder and just the Forebears section in the beginning of the book is somewhat complex for me; but then again that's always been Dawkins.
