It turns out the book I mentioned in my last Currently Reading post isn’t meant to be read straight through. The author actually instructs not to read more than a chapter a week, to make sure you thoroughly understand the subject matter (makes sense). This, however, is not a satisfying situation for any reader, especially since a book on anxiety and phobias isn’t exactly one you can lose yourself in, even when you’re not limited to perusing small chunks very slowly. So I’m picking up a book on the side. Something fun and distracting (which I think is as much therapy as any self-evaluation or visualization exercise). I don’t usually read mysteries, but it’s hard to resist one with witches and vampires.

What are you reading these days?

Cheers,

  1. That’s a new one to me – recommending folk not to read more than a chapter a week (well, apart from reading the agrippa haha). Is is terribly hard to digest or is each chapter 100 pages long?
    I am reading a history of the castles of some dukes in Brittany ;-p One family had 61 for good ness sakes!!

    1. No, the chapters aren’t too long or difficult, but there are exercises to do and I guess the author doesn’t want people to rush through.

      Your book sounds interesting! That family can feel free to donate one of their castles to me 😉 (And now we have a little more insight into the Revolution.)

      1. Ah ok. Not exactly showing much confidence in the reader though.
        It’s a crazy amount isn’t it? I know that castles were sometimes built to be a day’s travel apart but sometimes they had four within a 20 mile radius!

      2. I was also thinking the author didn’t have much confidence in the reader lol Glad it isn’t just me 🙂

        Some people collect books, some collect stamps, some collect castles! Apparently there’s no such thing as too many…
