I think we all connect with different parts of The BB at different phases in our process. Sometimes the direction and prayers go over my head. So I do not read too much at a time -- it's not a novel.

I believe some of the pamphlets and the Living Sober book are the best distraction and knowledge for under 90 days. That's just for me. Neither of those types of readings are as persuasive or decisive, so it's less pressure.
