What it is to discover that you’re currently reading the same book as someone else – Kate Briggs

I almost never read along with anyone else anymore. When I was a kid my mom read aloud to my sister and I, and we’d do books on tape on road trips. I’ve realized I don’t follow along that well just listening to someone else read, and I get impatient that I could read by myself faster, so as an adult I wouldn’t be interested in that format – but there is something delightful about reading the same book at the same time as someone else. It’s somewhat deflating when you read something great and don’t have anyone to gush about it to. Maybe I should see if my sister wants to read the same book at the same time 🤔
