I read. A lot. And when I say a lot I mean a extreme amount of books, reports, etc. Who knows how many paragraphs I've read? I am currently reading
seven books at the same time. I typically read five or six chapters of one, pick up another one a few hours later and repeat. Mentally I can go back
and re-read every paragraph that I've read and remember the important plot points, certain paragraphs and I can always keep all of the characters in
order. Another strange thing is that when I read something I always envision it mentally. And were not talking stick figures or something. I piece
together the appearance of a character from what I get from the description, their voices and their personalities. And the end product is a mental
version (Not mental as in crazy :pbjtime
version of a hit movie.
Even when I go back to five or six years ago I can vividly remember things I've read. It's just strange because sometimes when I am actually reading
something I don't really pay attention. I drift off into my head and far away from the novel. But I subconsciously pick everything up along the way
and later I'll remember what I've read. I don't know. I just think it's kind of interesting. Is there anyone else out there who does this?
