Different ways to read

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 24, 2015, 2:16 PM
Have you ever found yourself thinking while you read a book (or watched a well written show) 'Good CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!' (and yes, character development gets capital letters, both because it is rarely well written, and because it is the point here. Kind of) or 'That (insert something here) makes no sense, it was just put there to move the plot' or anything similar to that? 

What I'm trying to ask is whether/how often do you find yourself reading or watching something not as a viewer, taking it all as if it was real, but analytically, taking it apart as you go? Because I have found myself doing this more and more recently and I'm not sure if it's a good thing, since I can't really get into the book/show if I'm dissecting it as I go xD

I am one of those persons that really like to write, but are sometimes too lazy to do it, which explains why I post things here every other lifetime. I like to read, a lot, mostly epic fantasy, and occasionally those boring books you have to read for school xD I love languages and learn English, German, and Japanese, the last two being still on basic level though. My favourite books are from Discworld series and I love about every quote from there.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

"Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry."

— Terry Pratchett (Thief of Time)

"Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it."
— Terry Pratchett (Reaper Man)

"No! Please! I'll tell you whatever you want to know!" the man yelled.
"Really?" said Vimes. "What's the orbital velocity of the moon?"
"Oh, you'd like something simpler?"
— Terry Pratchett (Night Watch)

And so on. I could probably post a hundred of this here xD

I also love computer games. Currently, I'm playing Darksiders II

P.S I give llamas as a 'thank you' for favourites :D

I have recently managed to forget where a piece of furniture in my own house stood, which caused me to then very embarrassingly trip over it and fall. Has that ever happened to any of you as well? xD 

3 deviants said How exactly did you manage to forget that there is a huge wooden chest standing under the mirror? (that's what I fell over and honestly, I still don't know how I managed it xD)
2 deviants said A few times when I was destracted
1 deviant said Yes, I frequently forget the layout of my own house
No deviants said No, not that I can remember
