Well, I would say that as we grow up, we have more and more things that *have* to be done before we can sit down with a good book.
As a lad I was able to read a book a day. I used to frequent 6 different libraries at the same time.
I expect that when I retire I will be able to get back to my reading habits from childhood. The situation *is* different than it was in my youth, though. Nowadays we have Internet and forums like this one (I could be reading a book instead of writing this post ;-)), we have a dozen Discovery (and National Geographic, Viasat explorer ...) channels available on our satelite receiver, instead of two black-and white watered-down TV channels of my youth ....

Great book. Do try to finish it - well worth the read, if you like that kind of stuff.
