It's been a slow year, but a few days ago I got fired and I plan to to work two or three days a week in a factory until March. I'll have more free time.

I've read a lot but it was all non fiction (selfhelp, writing manuals, psychology, philosophy. mathematics, grammars).

I tried getting back into fiction for the nth time this summer with an Agatha Christie's book on the beach and I couldn't get past half of it. I always feel like I'm wasting my time while I could be learning some new skills from nonfiction. The only narrative I'm getting at this point is reading in the foreign languages I'm learning. I would post that improover meme but I can't find it.

>spending the time to make this shitty bait image
No (you) for you faggot.

>> No.19195792

>worried about wasting time
>reads psychology books
>and self-help
Your life is a waste anon, don't let that detract from reading fiction.

>> No.19195844

90% of self help books are drivel, but a few were really useful to fix something in my life. With time I've also become much better at recognizing the good stuff, and extracting the few good bits from the "one good idea with 200 pages of filler" stuff. The last self help books I read were all responsible for some objective, measurable positive change.

Philosophy and mathematics are probably a waste, but I can't help the need to understand more.

>> No.19195878

My property. Hence why I throw my women around.

>> No.19195892

I've read 42 books so far. Plan to read around 70 maybe?

>> No.19196056

A lot of genre this year. I started and dropped a lot of my literary picks. It’s weird because I’ve been spending way more time indoors this year than usual because of the pandemic
I’ve just been so lazy and unmotivated this year.

>> No.19198949

I enjoyed the TV show more, but yeah I enjoyed the book. Only read it if you like the idea of pretentious teens falling in love.

>> No.19199004

I haven't read Master and the Margherita. Heart of a Dog was good, funny at some parts. It was short too.

>> No.19199009
