Well, I can sit down and read them. But it's not very useful, was my point.

I once loaned this 500ish page book from a friend that I really wanted to read, but procrastinated until the last moment, and had to return it when we met the next day.

So I read the whole book in one evening.

I barely remembered anything from the book as I finished it. Maybe 1-2 pages that really caught my attention.

I read it, as in my eyes moved over the words, but I don't retain any info.

On Ritalin/Elvanse, I read just as much, but remember a bit more. Maybe a whole 5 pages worth!
