Having covered a fair amount of books recently something occurred to me as I was making my way through certain pages in which I became suddenly aware of my reading habits in a similar way that I've had an epiphany recently relating to the way I work.

I guess it relates to a desire for perfectionism and thoroughness.

When I'm working on the computer and I'm doing something as naming a file; if I've found that I haven't typed the filename with a capital letter, I'll delete or bring the cursor back to correct it. Likewise, I used to do similar trivial things such as ensure that all files were in their relative folders as opposed to my desktop in every instance where a file happened to end up there.

To relate it back to reading, I find that I spent too much time reading what I knew at the back of my mind wasn't benefitting me. I'd read pages of Aknowledgements in books, which provided no use to me and I'd fumble over the pronunciation of names.

It dawned on me that none of this stuff really matters.

I shouldn't feel guilty for not having read every word of a book because not all of those words hold value to my development.

[B]Reading should perhaps be selective based upon an educated decision, not a compulsion to read from cover to cover?
