Being a fast reader is both a blessing and a curse. Everyone acts as if they want to become a fast reader. After all, this can make reading tasks go by faster, and it can help make your routine more efficient. There are apps to increase your reading speed, and even ways that you can speed up audiobooks so they read out loud faster.
The problem with being a fast reader is that your books simply don’t last as long. It’s like being a fast eater: you sit down to enjoy a delicious plate of food, but it’s gone in the blink of an eye and suddenly you’re accusing your dog of eating it, when it was actually you the whole time. Similarly, you sit down to enjoy a new book, and in a flash you’re finished and you have nothing but a book hangover and an empty TBR pile to console you.
Of course, there are pros and cons to everything in life, and if you’re a fast reader you take the good with the bad. Maybe you sometimes wish you could savor your favorite books (or even erase them from your mind, so you could read them for the first time all over again). But at the end of the day, you wouldn’t change your reading speed at all, because you’re still going to spend just as much time doing what you love — spending plenty of time with books.
