Probably a silly question, but a question nonetheless.
I've noticed over the years I tend to speed read in a sense. I look over pages for basic concepts, plot points, and other things of the like just for the sake of continuing progress at an accelerated rate. If I'm on the first paragraph of a page in a novel, and I don't feel anything going anywhere, I pick out bits and pieces and continue to the next page. Sometimes, though, I have found myself unaware of what's happening, and sometimes I'll look back and realize I haven't committed to memory a single important detail for the past thirty pages, though my mind was certainly generating imagery. I suppose I'm not so much focused about particulars of words as I am the overall structure of a novel, though I tend to do this with non-fiction as well, which almost defeats the purpose of reading non-fiction.
The only up side is that I can read a book six times and still find new content =P
How do you tend to read?
