I don’t read books anymore. Haven’t in years.
I skim when I look at books. Bold print. Pictures. Index. Table of Contents. Go straight to what I want, shut the book.
Even when I *did* read books, I hardly read them left to right, except fiction. I usually just dive in, whole book at once, digesting the bits I wanted and leaving the fluff behind. And with fiction? Well, I haven’t read much fiction in a while. There’s enough fiction in non-fiction to keep me busy tongue emoticon
