I'm an eighteen-year old two-faced Filipina extrovert who has been living in the pages of books for two years now. I expertize in warped logic and extreme criticism.
I always look at the book's last page first and check how many pages it has before I start reading. I've been training myself with quick-reading and the book's number of pages is somehow an incentive for me to finish within the estimated number of days or hours I ought to consume for reading.
No, reading books isn't a job for me. It's still for pleasure and escape from reality, only, with a goal.
