Not Watching Shows Like Twin Peaks Is How I Read So Much

People ask how I manage to read so much. Clearly, the answer involves not watching shows like Twin Peaks.

In the course of 8 days, I watched seasons 1 and 2, Fire Walk with Me, and the new 2017 return series. According to my math, which could be off a little bit at least, that’s almost 43 hours of programming in 8 days. At the same time, it took me about 9 days to finish reading Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales. Granted that is 628 pages and I only read a couple at a time because I wanted to pay close attention and let things sink in, but still. It should have taken 3 days or so.

Not normally watching television is clearly one of the reasons I normally read so much. Add television back in and the reading goes way down.
