I've now read 182 pages of Toto of Oz
, which is twenty-two chapters out of thirty. I think I've also read most of John Swartzwelder's Double Wonderful
, although I don't have the book here with me to check. They're both short books, so it's not like I'm a speed reader or something. But I am reminded of how bethje
has told me that she enjoys being in the middle of reading a good book. I, on the other hand, tend to hurry through them. I guess I'm pretty much the same way with food. People say that you should savor foods you enjoy, but I want to eat things I like quickly, and then have more. Sometimes, however, there IS no more, and I guess that'll also be the way with Oz books after I'm done Toto
. But I do like to have finished a book, because then I can mull it over and discuss it with other people (not that I know very many other people who have read Toto
, but I can still write a review on my journal). I was wondering what other people's thoughts on the matter are, and since I think I'm now able to make polls, I might as well go ahead and try that.
How quickly do you usually read books (when you're reading for fun, that is)?
I rush through as quickly as possible!
I'm pretty fast, but I'll take occasional breaks and such.
I much prefer to savor it, and read slowly.
I try to read slowly, but I have trouble putting a book down.
I try to read quickly, but I just can't seem to manage it.
I read most of it, and then leave a little bit at the end that I save for a while.
It really depends on the book.
I don't read books!
Do you re-read books?
All the time! If I enjoy a book, once is never enough!
I re-read a lot of books, but by no means all of them.
Only books that I really enjoyed
Only books that fit certain criteria (author, series, subject, etc.)
Only if there's something I think I missed the first time through
Only certain parts
Only if I absolutely have to
I never read a book more than twice.
I never read a book more than once.
Didn't I already tell you I don't read books?
What book have you read the most times?
Do you ever look ahead in a book you're reading?
All the time! Heck, I hardly ever read a book in order.
No, that would ruin it!
It depends on the book.
Sometimes, but I always end up feeling bad about it
I try not to, but I just can't help it.
Only if I already have a pretty good idea that I know what will happen
I don't, but the idiots on the Internet always ruin it for me anyway!
No, and I read in total isolation to avoid spoilers.
How many times do I have to choose the last option before you get the message?
In other entertainment news, one of my Sims just died of old age, and it was pretty crazy. The Grim Reaper showed up with hula girls, and Hawaiian music played. As I suspected, it doesn't take that long for an elder Sim to end up in the grave. I guess there's always that Elixir of Life for Sims I want to keep around. How does that work, anyway?
