“Regarding long reads: in case of doubt, skip to the conclusion. If it’s worthy of understanding how the author got there, read it all. If not, congratulations. You just avoided wasting time.” — Roberto Estreitinho

Our time is limited. The content available on the Internet (seemingly) is not. Estreitinho’s post on his new system for reading is worth a read, especially if you’re one of those people who absolutely must finish every book.

    Great article. My personal page limit has always been 100, but why not make it 30- saving 2/3 of that time!

    Thought it was just me! People think I’m crazy to do that. If I don’t like it I will usually skip to the last paragraph & see the synopsis or ending. I don’t care if you tell me how things end either. If I’m enjoying it, I will anyway.
