This is probably old news to everyone. But I finally, after ages and ages, decided to update my kindle. And now I can ‘learn reading speed’. Not only does it tell me how long do I have left of the book, but also how long I have left of my current chapter.
To be honest this is a little daunting. There now feel like there is pressure when it come to reading. Especially when I’m not reading fast enough so the time either goes up or it decides to stay at the same number for ages and ages.
it got me thinking about my reading speed, not whether I’m a fast or slow reader, but whether my speed is affected by the book being read. This week alone I’ve taken three days to read evilly small book but only mere hours to read what I consider a door stopper of a book!
And now that I can know how long a book could potentially take me to read, I find myself choosing books based on time rather than whether I’ll enjoy it or not. If its too long I’ll put it to one side, for a later date when I have ‘more time’ if it every happens! This should not be affecting my reading habits, it should be a nice little tool to let me know when I reading an e-book, how much I have left.
Has anyone else noticed this on their kindle? What do you think of ‘learn reading speed’? Has it affected your reading habits?
