Would you say that you read about the same amount now as when you were younger? More? Less?
I read a tremendous amount more now than I ever have in my life. This year I have really become addicted to reading. I’m not really sure what set it off, I have had moods where I feel like I should read more and this last time it was more of a life change than a mood.
I am probably going to read between 70 and 80 books this year. Without knowing for certain I would say my previous high for a year was maybe in the 20s. I never used to read more than one book at a time but now I am almost always in the middle of three. There also used to be breaks in between books, now there is a constant cycle. There is just no comparison to any other time in my life.
I can’t fully explain why I enjoy reading so much, but I did attempt to address that question in one of the earliest posts on this blog (which I can’t find to link to). But it keeps me going, reading book after book.
