When you read, do you try to hang on to every word or do you skim to an extent if you don't find the content either relevant/entertaining or you figure you won't remember a specific section to begin with?

    I absolutely hang on to every word. if after I am done with it I come to the conclusion that book did not pay off the effort I put into it I burn it and shit talk about the author for the rest of my life on every occasion.

    I skim, but I feel bad about it. Usually not relevant because I read things I know I'll like, or I stop reading if it's not what I expected.

    Every time I see pictures of sapeurs I am disappointed they just adopted Western fashion. Traditional African clothes are more interesring.

    I read the whole thing because I bought the book to read the book, not to skim read the book.

    i read every word and at the speed i imagine it would be like in a movie, i basically adapt the book into a movie inside my head if that makes sense. after every chapter i take a short break and recall what happened in the chapter to better retain what i have read so far

      There's no way you can read as quickly as it would go in a movie

            yeah, like that but i also try to imagine what the scene would look like in my head, but i assume most people do that.

            i could read faster but i probably wouldn't retain much of what i've read

    My zoomer brain is melted so I often skim and then have to re-read paragraphs

    if it's too boring, i speed-read. i'm not skimming or skipping any words, i'm just letting them wash over me without focusing fully. i stopped doing it so much when i realized that i will probably never ready any of these books again. it makes more sense to just quit reading if the book sucks

    I rarely read fiction, but usually just read pretty casually when I do. Not skimming, just getting through it.

    When it comes to non-fiction, I'll read it very carefully unless I'm just looking for specific information for research/reference.

    For the holy scripture, I'll read every word aloud in recitation to commit it to the mind and soul. Recitation is good practice for delivery, toned chant is transcendent.

    I pay close attention to every word, and if there’s a phrase or passage I like I reread it until I’m satisfied. For me, reading is a leisurely activity, and the act of reading is enjoyable. I’m not in it just to finish a book quickly.

    I think I have adhd so it kind of weaves in and out of extremes of both. I completely gloss over entire archs and chapters while analyzing others like a scholar in the same piece of literature

    I often get distracted and think about something else. Could be a page, or even an entire chapter. I play chess this way, too. Always blunder and lose.

    i often pay close attention to everything, likely not missing a thing. even getting to know how the author operates.
    if the book is trash, i'll start to blow through it and maybe even skip parts entirely

    Why would I bother getting a book to read if I didn't plan to read it? Skimming is shit you do when you are forced to engage with material (either by some establishment or by your own desire to posture in some way), not when you are an adult with the agency to pick what material you want to engage with.

    I try to read every word, but then you have a high chance of getting frustrated because it soon becomes clear that the author is commiting a logical error. Uses of vague words and senseless enumeration are common in almost all books.(including supposedly 'philosophical' books) So I tend to gloss over seemingly logical errors if necessary and also to save myself from wanting to punch the author in the face.
