Is it me or is anyone else a slow reader for the first 100 to 150 pagesIs it me or is anyone else a slow reader for the first 100 to 150 pages Megan #questionnaire
I’m the opposite! To start with I am a total word gobbler, easily devouring the first 2/3 of a book without fear or favour!
But then I hit the last part and tragedy strikes! Because if it’s a bad book my interest wanes, I read other books and either abandon it or slowly slog through if still curious.
If it’s a good book, exciting and fun and all the right things, then I STILL slow down as I don’t want it to end! I want to live in the world a bit longer so again, I read other books and slowly slowly savour the ending of this one! ?
My issue is that reading makes me sleepy. It doesn’t matter how rested I am :/
It depends on how many characters are introduced at once. If the story is zigging and zagging between many characters storylines, it really slows me down!
Yep! Me too!
My almost 10-year-old reads faster than I do.
I am slow until it hooks me

So… I’m a bit of an insomniac, and I take the train to/from work. When I start a new book, until I get fully invested in the story I fall asleep reading on the train almost every day! ?
Me too. I find the first 100 pages way longer than the last 100! ?
It really depends on the book. Some authors are what I consider ‘slow starters.’ That’s why I won’t allow myself to give up on a book until I have read through chapter 3. That often seems to be a turning point in many books.
