    Amm the last book I read was “something in the water” I felt so heartbroken because the character found out that her husband didn’t love her. I felt like I could feel her emotions.

    I don’t really read a lot of series because it’s hard to find them sometimes in order here. And I don’t think any of the ones I read heals crazy deaths ?

    I like to read actual books as my eyes get tired from the screen and I feel it’s generally better for some reason lol.

    Oh I’m sorry about that! Get help if it’s provided or a tutor maybe (if it’s that type of exam).

    I finished my last exam in 16/5 and now I’m waiting for my certificate and graduation.

    For those of you struggling to find time to read, I listen to most of my books on audio, and it's great! Currently listening to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo :)

    I prefer reading my books. It might be because I read books in other languages so it’s easier to read than listen. I also tend to daydream a lot. Reading keeps me focused.

    I suggest reading in buses, trains and cars (as a passenger of course).

    Audiobooks are amazing! You just need to get used to them.
    The first audiobook I ever listened to was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone read by Stephen Fry (no need to draw a picture as to who he is)... Man that was awesome.
    The guy even does the voices of the characters, and his Hagrid is spot on!

    Currently listening to Blink by Michael Gladwell (read by the author himself).

    Yeah, audiobooks take some getting used to. There are still some books I prefer to read with my eyes, especially if there's a lot of world building, because sometimes I need to read those parts really slowly to get a good picture in my mind. But I almost prefer audiobooks most of the time now. There are some great voice actors out there who do a wonderful job making the characters come alive.

    I'm really grateful for audiobooks, because with my job, I can listen to an entire book in like 2 days usually. 3 at the most. I would never be able to read that many books if I had to sit down and devote all my attention to them.

    I agree. On physical copies you have the possibility to highlight any passage that attracts your attention. Add to that the fact that not all books are available as audiobooks.

    If you finish a book in 2 or 3 days then how do you manage to remember what you have read, or get anything at all from it ? Like even if it's just a novel, you probably won't even be able to remember the characters' names!
    Isn't it better to go slowly, trying to understand what is being said and get the max out of it ?
    But if it works for you then fine!

    I just filmed a video talking about the 10 books I read in may, and I still remember all of them. I don't necessarily remember everybody's names, but I don't really care about that. And it just depends on the book. Sometimes if I really love a book, I don't pick up another one for a couple days, because I just want to keep daydreaming about that world for a while.

    That is just great! I mean the video, which I assume is for youTube or something like that.
    If finishing a book in 2 days does work for you then all the best man. I know it doesn't work for me.

    Yeah, it was for YouTube :p I go through various spurts or reading a new book every couple days, and then not reading anything for weeks or something. Lol so it really just depends on my mood.

    Aha :D Good luck dude! Takes some courage to do that, and at least you are channeling your energy in a good manner.
    When you have time, and are in a good mood, I suggest you give A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole a shoot. It's available on YouTube!

    By the way sorry to see that your counter has been reset.
