Insane and Inefficient

I can remember the “good ole days” when I purchased and read one book at a time. I would immerse myself whole-heartedly into the book’s subject matter until I finished it in a matter of days. But ever since I bought my first e-reader (Sony PRS-500) several years ago, I’ve become addicted to buying and reading several books simultaneously. For example, here is the current set of books that I’m currently reading on my Kindle Fire HD:


Like multi-tasking, this multi-reading process is insane and inefficient. I don’t absorb the material as deeply, reading is not as fun as it used to be, and I can’t seem to kick the freakin’ habit. Does anyone know of a 12 step program out there that cures this scourge?

      🙂 I figured that I’m not alone. It’s gotten worse. First it was 2 books open, then all of a sudden it’s four, then eight 😦

    simple solution. drop that Kindle into the dumpster and go back to toting around a real physical paper-based information transfer device. That’ll cure your multifaceted reading disability, that is, until you get a bookbag like the ol’ college days…
