    understandable, I used to be the same way. Now, most of my reads are nonfiction because I feel like it's more applicable to life.

    idk, in the age of YouTube especially, I just can't do it, I don't have the attention span, in school I'd take any shortcut possible not to read novels and textbooks

    U gotta train it, human brain is so malleable. If you condition yourself with reading even just 10 minutes every morning it gets a lot easier

  • I disagree.

  • Why not just read graphic novels ? There's a lot out there

    Part of why people read is because they wanna use their imagination and enter the world of the book that way

    Sometimes I'll search fan art of a character from a book, or even an official illustration on like the cover or something and be like nah that's not how I pictured em at all, I prefer my version

  • It's just an attention span thing. I used to struggle with walls of text as well, but when I cut down on the time I spend on social media, I can focus a lot more than before now

  • No imagination having mf
