I trust we’re all familiar with binge-watching. (Or is this just something I tell myself to make myself feel better about blazing through a season of Gilmore Girls in a week?)
Recently it’s been Sherlock and Veronica Mars. Before that it was The Office and Friday Night Lights. All were worth the time, but after so much screen time, I start to feel like I’d be better served by binging on books instead.
Since I read this post, I’ve been thinking about books I’ve binged on in the past, and what I’d like to include in future reading binges.
I have a long, (mostly) proud history of binge reading—and by binging, I mean “sat down on the couch and strongly resisted moving until I finished the last page.”
Books I’ve binge-read in the not-too-distant past include:
I’ve also been plowing through deliberate practice books. Because I go on a topical binge every once in a while.
And I would love to find the time to binge-read these:
Sherlock Holmes. I recently picked up an old edition that bound A Study in Scarlet and The Hound of the Baskervilles together, and flew through them both. I loved reading these stories after binge-watching Sherlock so recently, and seeing how true the modern scripts hew to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories despite the century gap. Now I want to read the rest (and then–let’s be honest–binge-watch Sherlock some more).
