Reading Shakespeare used to feel hard, but after trying to read Faust (still in the middle of it), reading Shakespeare is so easy now.
Reading Guns, Germs and Steels makes reading other non-text science books easier too..
Still took more then three weeks to read that special holiday edition of Economist. But I really enjoyed it. I'll get better some day..
Now just need to find something that makes reading Faust and Guns, Gems and Steels easier...
