Are we Reading Less?
I realized a little while ago – when yet another book arrived from Amazon and was thrown on the to-read pile – that I’m no longer the bibliophile I once was. I love the idea of reading books, but I’m not making time to do it. Recent fiction isn’t appealing – I don’t seem to have the patience or interest. (I feel like Jessica Crispin in that respect). And nonfiction, which I have been reading occasionally, seems too much like a part of my job.
Personally, I think I’m reading far more but far less in the printed, dead-tree versions. I blame the Google. Do you?
