1. Any book with this many words and this many pages gives you anxiety.

2. You have to reread almost each page just to make sure you understand each and every detail, and it's just too much.

You'll never, ever get to them all.

4. You can never finish reading subtitles in movies or TV shows before they go away.

5. Having to pause several times throughout a movie when there's text so that you can read it in its entirety.

6. And then having your friends tell you to "Just hurry up," LIKE IT'S THAT EASY.

7. Having someone show you an article on a computer or phone and not being able to finish because they're scrolling too fast.

8. Anyone asking you, "Are you finished yet?" when they give you something to read.

12. Driving by billboards and not being able to read them fully before going past them.

13. Getting into a reading groove and then being interrupted.

Great, gotta go back to page one.

14. Refusing to read anything that's more than a couple paragraphs in one sitting.
