Shane,

I guess reading is my "television." However, I think I am doing too much "channel surfing." I don't remember all of it (obviously), but I write notes in the margins and try to interact with the book. Once I finish these books I will try to read no more than three at a time. I do not recommend reading tons of books at once.
