Re: How much text can you read per week unmedicated ?

I know what you mean, this is very tricky to discuss.

I guess normal people simply say the book was boring, when they don't recall anything.

I rarely know if it's the text's fault (some books are indeed boring and poorly edited), or I simply do not have any drop of hyperfocus left on this day.
But usually I remember much more, for a week or so. Then it slowly degrades, but I still remember what I read and where, more or less, for up to several years.

This ratio 5/500 pages sounds very challenging. Actually it seems like either the book was terribly boring, or you have very high anxiety.
