Last one, I promise.
You know it's funny. I used to be a very fast reader. A book a day was not at all uncommon. I now share my life with someone who could probably read 8 books a day. I know why I slowed down. Even as a bachelor knight I couldn't pay for that many books. I've fixed that problem but still, I unlearned a skill I once had. Reading and comprehension accelerated up to a certain point and then they perished, gently, like a polar bear on a shrinking ice floe in the Pacific just off Hawaii.
