retired. at 71 i speed read to slow read. i skim the nytimes cover to cover and some website writings. then slow read the important or entertaining stuff. for the best i write my own short summary. rarely ever read any of it again but the process seems to keep the best stuff available for later use. my mind triggers the tagged prior events and recalls it…even months and years later. the human brain is amazing. now if i just get a tool to read my wife’s brain. it’s locked up pretty tight.
