Sometimes I feel like such a bad reader. A “bad reader” could mean a lot of things. Personally, one of the reasons I call myself a bad reader is because I’m a forgetful reader.
See, in school, we have this thing where we have to read five books a quarter and take a test for each of them at the end of the quarter. In the previous quarter, I took a test for the first Harry Potter book and the first four Percy Jackson and the Olympians books because I was like, hey, I really enjoyed these book so surely I’ll remember them.
Imagine my surprise when I FAILED my test for Battle of the Labyrinth, which I’ve called my all-time favorite book so many times. I only got FOUR out of ten answers correctly, and that was like a stab to the heart. I think I got six out of ten for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
So I actually don’t understand how people remember such details in books, like all the die-hard Potter fans who know all the people, the spells, the items… I’m a forgetful person, whether or not I enjoyed a book, and that makes me feel a bit like a bad reader.
Penny for your thoughts? Have you ever felt like you’re a “bad” reader? What’s your definition of a “bad” reader, if any?
