Hi friends! I’m here to offer up a single, burning-like-Mary-Winchester-on-the-ceiling* question: does reading books help with short attention spans?
*yes I know that was uncalled for
Don’t get me wrong, if my computer takes 10 seconds to boot up I want to go out and buy a new one. No joke.
We live in an age where social media makes us all think that we need to do something ALL THE TIME. Spare minute? Pull out the phone. It’s actually kind of hilarious, because when I read about old times and they easily wait like an hour and I’m just like HOW.
But anyway. Do bookworms have a longer attention span? Even by a nano-second? For example, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor are slow. The writing is gorgeous, but they’re SLOW. Of course, this isn’t true for all bookworms, I don’t even know if it’s true at all! But I thought it would be an interesting topic to discuss.
Tell me your thoughts and experiences!
