Well, it was a mistake to think I could give up reading or that it was a good idea. I realized I just need to approach reading in a slightly different way. I am trying to be more aware writing style and how the author is narrating the book. I am trying to slow my reading down a little. Sometimes I read so fast I miss things. I am trying to notice the details in the writing along with enjoying the story.
I just keep trying to find a balance. If only I didn't need to sleep I could do it all while my family sleeps.
