I hope all is progressing well.

Piled and Organized Books

I've been thinking about reading.

I remember having a conversation with a person wanting to read more though claiming an inability to read due to time constraints (after confirming their leisurely activities). I propose the person set a time for reading in place of one of their leisurely activities (which they agreed, they could do without) or at a time before resting. I remember conversing with one of my professors in Graduate school about reading certain literature as episodic instead of attempting to swallow texts whole.

Every time I read, I grow to appreciate each paragraph more and more. I've always been one to appreciate every paragraph (depending on the reading, each line of a paragraph may have much to unpack). One might think setting chapters are enough. Yet, readers must acknowledge their practice of reading; readers must acknowledge each part of the entirety, and appreciate the text in front of them, at each point, through to their completion of their reading sessions.

Happy Reading!

Onward and Upward,

P.S. I'm currently (and finally) reading Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace.
