Two modes of reading
Over the last five decades I've read more and more, starting with reading for rntertainment as a young adult and then having to switch to more comprehensive reading of technical manuals. This has now come full circle in the last fifteen years back to reading for pleasure. I now read a book a week, either paperback, paperbound or hardbound. My library is huge, now over 1,000 hardbound. The paperbacks and paperbound books get passed around among friends and eventually find their way to the flea market. The hardbound volumes get my special label inside the cover and I ask those who borrow and read to sign their names so they know they've read it and I can also track the type and authors they like best. Mostly techno-thrillers with some sci-fi from the major authors. I still have to switch gears when it comes to tech manuals and due to advancing age have had to take notes on important procedures lest I ave to dig through the manual again. Comprehension will always be foremost even when just reading for pleasure.
