I was always a big magazine reader. I bet we get well over a dozen periodicals. I can count the number of books I've read on one hand in the past 10 years. I used to plow through books before that. Like one every weekend!!

I still try to read but my mind wonders so much. Either it is something mental or just the fact that with the computer age everything moves so fast that reading is too slow and boring. I often find myself reading and not comprehending what I am reading and then rereading the same sentence over and over.

Apropos of focus on reading-material - sometimes I like to read things aloud to myself, seems to help with concentration and understanding.

Exactly. I need to reread because of a wondering mind. It really sucks. Hopefully it improves.
