Its actually a bit annoying at times. I find myself unable to read lots of books more than once or twice as I can remember the plot too well, and so they dont interest me anymore, and so that cuts down my reading options. Then, when you consider that I can finish one to two 600 page books a day if i have the time, and suddenly a weeks reading is 15 books, of 400 to 600 pages, up to 20+ books of a smaller size. even if i work 7 days a week, i can finish 3/4+ of a hh book in my breaks. So I have the problems of the library lending limit, finding enough good books with enough pages, having to move a 40 to 50 cm (foot and a half or so) pile of books around, storing them, transporting them, and making them last, as i dont often go to the library for weeks at a time as i cant. So in some ways, i envy the slow readers. you naturally have less problems surrounding reading material.
its not paranoia if its justified...
