Curious Rat – Home – I’m Giving Up Reading for a Year

You might be saying, “Harry, why would you try something like this? Giving up something that enriches our lives on a daily basis is stupid.” I’ll tell you why. It’s because I am too involved with words. I feel like I’ve only examined books and magazines up close. I spend, on average, 18+ hours a day reading things. Whether they’re milk cartons, subway signs, or even bumper stickers, I am way too connected to the written word.

Now I want to see words at a distance. By separating myself from written language, I’ll be able to see which aspects of reading are truly valuable, which are distractions, and which ones give me explosive diarrhea.

Clever.
