On Enjoyable Reading

For reading to be enjoyable, there are only three conditions which need to be met. I cannot have any sort of looming deadlines; I’m far too nervous to focus on a book when I have tasks which need to be done. Secondly, a beverage is a must. Before, it was coffee, but now I mostly drink water. It’s nice to have a bottle to fiddle with while I hold a book with my other hand; I’m a very antsy person. Finally, I cannot tolerate absolute silence. Some background noise must be present, or I’ll get too far into my own head about how quiet it is. With those conditions met, I enjoy almost any sort of book. I think there’s something to be gained, whether it be vocabulary or style from any text.
