Reading and Understanding
I was reading a book that my dad bought me like 10 years ago. A Dr Dolittle book. The vocabulary is easy but the content wasn't amusing to me. So my mind wondered off like so many times it has when I'm reading. I started thinking what it means to be able to read and things you read actually goes in your brain. My eyeballs follow the line and I understand the words. But I'm not sure I understand the whole thing. Sometimes I have to read the sentence several times to understand it. I forget what it said in the beginning of the sentence when I'm reading the last part of it. Am I just lacking in concentration or am I dumb or something? I'm not even sure if I understand what understanding means.
