What are /lit/izens reading habits? Right now I've been reading 2 hours, five days a week. Considering college is still online I got time. But sooner or later I'll become a wagie and I'll probably just have like 1 hour at best. Is hour everyday enough to make it as a true reader? How many hours do you read daily, /lit/?
>>20312096No 1 hour is not enough. There is a mass of requirements you need to meet to even begin to think about ever becoming a real reader, and just from the look of you I can tell you have no chanceBut if you insist, the first requirement is getting the fuck out
>>20312096My reading is shit right now. I've stalled in the middle of Moby Dick and have only made it a couple pages further in the past two weeks. Too focused on school and writing
I generally end up sleeping these days when reading. I'll make it a page or two but no more.
>>20312189Holy shit. How long does it take you finishing a book?
Read whenever I feel like it. I read ~10-20 pages at a time taking frequent breaks to refocus and ruminate. Read 50-150 pages a day
>>20312198About one every two months this year. But sooner or later insomnia will return and I'll be back to 6 or so a month.CAPTCHA: R3TRD (hmm)
>>20312096I more or less have to read 5-6 hours every day to make a living and it is an endless nightmare.
>>20312096Yeah, I gotta agree with this anon >>20312179. From where I'm at, you just look like a plebian, op. I mean, god, look how little you've read in your life. I'm betting your monolingual? Jesus. It's pathetic. I work full time, and I still manage to get in 4 or 5 hours of reading a day. On weekends, probably about 8. I really just can't take you seriously, op. I cringe when I look at myself in the mirror and compare myself to the greats. Look at Leibniz, for example. But when I see you, man... at least I'm not that guy, is all I think. An hour a day... a true reader? hilarious. Anyways, op, get yourself together.
>>20314780>Works full time>Reads 4 to 5 yoursYeah, buddy, I bet you have a very wonderful life
>>20312096>once I become a wagie and have to work 40 hours a week I will have no time to read despite no longer having homework to do on top of my 40 hours a week of schoolMy reading time more than doubled after I finished school. Hell I managed to get in at least an hour of reading every day when i was in school and I was working a full time job as well. I read for 30 minutes to an hour at breakfast, read through my hour long lunch break and read for an hour before bed, still have a good 7 or 8 hours in the day for everything else I need to do. On weekends I tend to read for 3 or 4 hours every morning and my normal hour or so before bed. That is just the regular reading, I often read more and may do 4 or 5 hours of reading after work if I have nothing else going on or just feel like reading. You are looking for excuses and I am sure you will find them.
>>20312096I have to work 90-100 hours a week for a year or two and I still surpass an hour of reading everyday. A normal wagie job shouldn't be a problem.
>>20315768How the fuck do I spend less time on my phone and more tone reading? I swear I'm gonna lick this shitty thing in a safe to get some peace from its draw
