when i was a kid, before smartphones were a thing, and when internet was mostly for reading, pictures, and music, and when youtube was very small and i somehow didn’t care about it at all, i could fill my time just reading harry potter. i don’t know how it was possible, but i could just focus and read a book. but i have never read a book in a single day, and didn’t even know back then it was a thing.
these days, i can’t focus much at all. sometimes i can keep reading for hours but then i get bored or distracted. i read one book all the way through two months ago and that alone was something that made me proud of myself.
but i just don’t understand how can someone read a book in a day. it just sounds like magic. i asked google how many books are there in the world. it said, over hundred million. i guess i could just give up on reading altogether then.
