Is it weird to feel like I actually read faster on a Kindle? Have there been any scientific studies that have been done about this? I think it feels faster because 1) it feels like you're only ever reading the right page of the book, which I think I read faster in actual books. and because 2)it's lit up so my eyes never really got tired from poor lighting. I think both of these aspects (and the use of electronic note-taking) made my reading go smoother and faster. Maybe I'm crazy, but there really should be a study done about it.
Anyway, I still need to read things from the aforementioned piles of unread books in my room. Thinking of maybe adopting a read a Kindle book--read a real book--read a Kindle book--read a real book type system. What should my next book be? Thinking of picking one out of the 25 I haven't read on this list. I also have a whole pile of books set or published in the early 1900s-1920s that I put together after I finished Downton Abbey and needed literary supplement. I only got as far as The Great Gatsby (which also kind of ruined my life). So as you can clearly see, the weight of the world is resting on my shoulders. Any suggestions of books that I may want to start a deep, emotional and somewhat unhealthy involvement with? It would be greatly appreciated.
