Does it matter
How fast you read?
Does it matter if you finish a book in a day?
Or in a year?
Are you reading to pass the time
Or are you reading to make sense of the times?
Must you always read for yourself
Or does it need to be for a greater purpose?
Is it about retaining the information
Or letting the words walk through your mind?
Is reading only for ‘bookworms’
Or can anyone who’s literate dive right in?
People often don’t read
Because of assumptions they have
About ‘how its supposed to be done.’
But maybe more important than
‘Doing it right’
Is to simply do it.
You can figure out the rest
Along the way.
What will you read today?
