Reading apathy, which comes, which always comes, leaves you a little more defenseless, a little more silent, a little less alive. I finish the newspaper reports exhaustedI read WhatsApp with reluctance, the emails seem to me boring homilies, and when I go to a restaurant I order the first thing on the menu so I don’t have to read the entire thing. In short, a disaster. To get out of the mess, I propose to reread three novels short; the kind where you start, blink two, three times and you’re done.
