No one could ever call me a skimmer. Rather, I take my time while reading.
It’s mind-boggling to me how some readers are able to devour multiple novels per week. I have a friend who reads one novel per day and still finds time to write. Sadly, that will never be me.
Even when I get lost in the story, I can’t help but see the underlying craft. And I delight in the skill of other writers, highlighting passages (on my Kindle) or adding notes when it sparks an idea for my WIP.
Would I love to read faster? Absolutely. But when it comes to craft, I seem not to possess an OFF button.
What about you? Are you slow or fast reader?
