Who is the Superfast Reader?

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Whenever I finish reading a book, I’ll put up a post. Generally speaking, these posts will be capsule reviews–a short synopsis + my impressions of the book. I also have a fun little job where I get to read books before they are published, but I can’t talk publicly about those books for various reasons. So, whenever I finish a book for work, I’ll put up a post in the On Reading category. These will be anecdotes from my childhood as a bookworm and musings on the activity of reading and related topics.

Here’s a recent post that tells more about the mission of this blog.


That’s a much-younger me at my favorite place in the whole world–the local library. The rule was I could only check out as many books as I could carry, so I got a big bag. The first full-length novel I ever read was The Princess Bride. I will admit now that I skipped all the meta parts where the granddad was reading to his kid because I didn’t quite get the comedy. That might have been because I was six. I read books for fun and I read books for a living, but the main reason I read is because I’m totally and completely addicted to the written word. I average about 100 pages an hour. Whenever I travel, I always have as many books as I think I will need, plus one in case something happens and I’m trapped there without access to a bookstore. I often buy books while traveling anyway.

To be honest, I think I’m stuck this way.
