Annoying Reading Habits
I'm an annoying reader.
I can manage to annoy myself. That's how annoying I am.
So I'm cutting to the chase and share my bad reading habits.
- Reader ADD: This is very basic and though this doesn't happen to me often, it still happens to me. What is this exactly? Well it's when you can't focus on one book. If I'm going to be honest, my Goodreads currently-reading shelf should have 4 books on deck. See I'm in a mood for a book that I have no words for, it's like a food craving really. So I pick up a "maybe", read a few chapters and if I'm not satisfied I get another book and next thing I know, I have 4 books I'm alternately reading. The part of me that has OCD is shaking her head, looking at me like I just committed book murder.
- Suspended Ending: So I'm reading a book all day, no letting up, glued to the pages, 80% done with it. And almost always, this is the time when I think it's a great idea to start pattering around, doing other stuff than reading and finishing the damn book! This is the most frustrating part for me because I feel it's more of a compulsion than a choice. Like I can't sit still and finish the darn thing! So on average, it takes me about an hour or more to get through the last 20% or 100 or so pages.
- Reading the End: And when the story is too good and the action and suspense won't let up, I cheat and read the ending.
So these are my bad habits. I hope you won't leave me hanging and would go ahead and share yours?
