Do you get satisfaction from a book if you read it in one go? (Like watching a long awaited film)
Do you prefer the satisfaction of reading it in ‘installments’ over a few days or weeks? (thus being able to savour/take in what you have read each time)
Do you prefer to set yourself a kind of regiment to read a set number of pages at each sitting in order to savour the book fully over maybe a few months?
Which are you?
I think I am usually number 3, but sometimes a book is too good to put down (in my case this applies to a new Pratchett book, or a new installemt of the Harry Potter series)
I have been kicking myself for reading too much of the last harry potter book in one sitting. I believe by doing so I am not savouring it properly. Also I am allowing it to overcome sleep and thus my normal reason for reading books… to make me sleepy and fall asleep.
