I tried that once
There's your problem, you're not in cover
download books of the interwebs
like wheel of time, the shannara series, sword of truth, fan fiction, things like that
Reading the Wheel of Time series can do one of two things:
The first thing, you'll read the entire series and notice that it's only October 14th. Then you'll look closer at the date and realize it's 2016.
Or the second, you'll read the first hundred or so pages of the first book, realize that the characters have only taken three steps thought about taking three steps and burn the rest of the series, set a world record for fastest PC assembly and we'll see you in about an hour.
I can already assemble a pc in about an hour....
That's taking into account the time for the burning of the books, cackling manically, and grabbing a strawberry smoothie before the actual PC part.
I read the Wheel of Time series before it was finished by whoever it was that finished it. It only took me about 4 months. :smug:
I did not take the time to reread what I'd already read to properly finish the series. I couldn't get past the first book for the second time.
I now spend much of my reading on fanfiction, now. A good 80+ percent of it is absolute garbage, and much of the remainder is good for a bit of enjoyment but not good writing. I find that, on fanfiction.net at least, that setting your search to show only results of >10k or >20k words filters it enough so most of the stuff is at least halfway decent. Sometimes you stumble upon absolute gems, though.
How did you know I like strawberr smoothies?!
Strawberry Banana smoothies are my downfall!
When I make that I throw in chocolate ice cream to it
