Are you able to follow the book with its approach?
Does your mind drift?
Do you end up with more questions than the book offer?
Or something completely different?
I ask because this is something that has always frustrated me immensely. For example i am currently reading a book about the meaning of life. From a philosophical standpoint, of course there are going to be differing views and i enjoy hearing conflicting theories. However, once i start reading, i start considering this idea or that idea, then i need to find information to get more information then look at different viewpoint in regards to that information so i create myself more work yet i know i am not going to get an unbiased account. I would love to be able to sit and read and get through a book without questioning the why this or why that.
Trying to find a positive spin on all of this, i suppose at least i am keeping my mind active. Now only if i could retain the information then it wouldn't be in vain. The sad thing is, i won't stop either as as much as it frustrates me, i enjoy reading differing accounts and questioning peoples theories.
See, and even writing this. I've spent the last 10 mins trying to word this in such a way to bring it together yet feel like i've failed because i've got too many ideas bouncing around my mind that i'm trying to figure out myself thus reaching some kind of conclusion yet it's not happening. Blah.
