Why does it always take me at least as long to read the first 100 pages of a book — regardless of the book’s overall length, be it 250 pages or 500 pages — as it does to read the rest of the book?
Does this happen to anyone else? Or maybe you just haven’t noticed?
In addition to this phenomenon being oblivious to the book’s length, this … thing … is also indifferent to whether the book in question is fast-paced, plot-driven, character-driven, literary or genre fiction, YA or intended for adults.
Perhaps this experience is not true of nonfiction, though. I’ll have to think about that more.
So, anyone? Did I jog any memories out there? Please tell me I’m not alone.
