It’s been around 14 years since I’ve borrowed a book from a public library.
I spent most of my high-school and almost all my university years in one studying like every day was a final exam. I even smuggled mashed potato to eat in secret so I wouldn’t lose my seat. I hated it.
When I finished school, I couldn’t read books for fun anymore. My eyes kept skimming the words and I was missing so much I had to re-read pages over. In frustration I gave up trying to read for fun.
