I notice when I read a book outside of my special interest, I need to stop every few paragraphs, but when it’s a book within my special interest and you would not disturb me, or I had nothing to do all day, and I was allowed to read all day… I would finish the book in a few hours. I would not stop reading.
I have a few special interests, one of them being autism. I’m now reading the book by Cynthia Kim: “Nerdy, shy and socially inappropriate: a user guide to an asperger life”. I can honestly say that I had a few “aha”-moments already. it’s absolutely an interesting read, just as her blog.
