Reading as a Mental Barometer

mentalreadingstateAbout once or twice a year, I find that I’ve started one-too-many books. Sometimes, I just get too ambitious and sometimes what I’m reading is too dense and draining to give it my undivided attention. But I can almost always tell my mental state by how many books I’m trying to read at the same time:

  • 1 to 3 is very healthy
  • 4 is edging on unhealthy
  • 5 is the first step toward craziness
  • 6 or more is a sure sign I’ve gone off the deep end
  • 0 would naturally mean I’m dead
