You should read this. And this. And then you should read the books that are mentioned. And then you should tell me what you've read in those books since I take too long to read any book I pick up.
I'm also a bad listener, though, so if you tell me what you've read, my mind will start to drift almost immediately. Of course, if you were to actually read to me, my mind would drift immediately, not almost immediately. For some reason I have to see the words. I don't know why that is.
