True life, I’m a speed reader.
The skill was taught to me during an SAT prep course back in High School as a means to help us rock the upcoming exam. I don’t remember my exact score (I tend to block out traumatic life events) but I will never forget the sheer agony of the exam. The test came and went, the twitching subsided, and the skill that was speed reading stayed with me forever.
Or should I say haunted me forever? I have a voracious appetite for books as it is and it’s not lost on me that my mom deemed it my most expensive hobby. I could rarely walk away from a book once it’s binding had been cracked and, as a result, she had to buy me series of books in their entirety, for fear that I would finish one and promptly decide to take my crayons to the walls or something equally as destructive if left alone.
Come on!! It was one time!
I read ALL THE BOOKS. And when that wasn’t enough, I re-read them.
My bibliophile ways have slowed a bit since having the chickpea and I long to tear through books like I used to. Even with my penchant for speed reading, starting a book before bed is a guaranteed all-nighter for me. I tend to slow my reading as a book starts to pick up steam and reveal all it’s delicious plot twists and OMG IS THE SUN SERIOUSLY OUT WHAT ON EARTH TIME IS IT!?
So I try to limit myself to the occasional all-nighter while the majority of my reading revolves around Dr. Seuss tongue-twisters and entirely too many Sandra Boynton books of which I’ve committed to memory and recite slam poetry style when I’m bored.
Then there’s Paul who will read kiddie books William Shatner style and leave me writhing on the floor in giggles. My literary dynamic has changed quite a bit but books are still very much a joyous part of my life.
