So lately I’ve been reading Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. This book is 758 pages, and it’s not a mass paperback style book either. It’s a good 6in X 11.5in book. The text is small too, so you can imagine just how many words are in this edition.
I feel like reading a heavy book like this is much like running a marathon; you have to pace yourself. I’ve been slowly getting through this book, but after the 24hr readathon, I kind of burnt myself out a little bit. I read a little over 250 pages that day, and I don’t normally read that much.
Should I do that more often to get more accustomed to it? Or should I take a break from reading in general? I don’t know. All I know is I need to finish reading SOMETHING. The last book I finished was about a month ago.
