Until this year, well at least since I’ve been in London, I considered myself a 25-30 books a year man. Generally, I’ve polished off a couple of books a month on average, with some extra novels consumed on holiday.
But since I’ve had a Kindle, or Kindle enabled device, like my smartphone, I’ve consumed fiction at a much faster rate. I read faster, I appear to absorb what I’ve read faster and my appetite for reading has been greatly increased (this also includes consumption of paperbacks). By my current calculations I’ll probably end up consuming three times my usual amount. This is one hell of a hike!
Has anybody else also had this effect? Has it also affected what you’ve read too? I’ll be interested to know your opinions.
