Could we have a little discussion about the nature and definition of "purpose"? Most people don't seem to get it and I sure don't. It appears to get confused with "intention." You keep telling us, that without properly formulated purpose there is no photoreading. Could you give us a little of what you see as "purpose"? How to go about formulating it?
Whenever I decide to read a book is because it grabs me. It makes me say to myself "this sounds fascinating! I want to read this!" And I do. The books I would like to photoread are technical books for my work as a psychotherapist. Books about the brain, how it works, about techniques, etc. but when it comes to formulating a purpose, the most I can come up with is "I want to know this so I can use it in my work with people and be a better therapist." I can see that this is more an intention than a purpose, so I really need HELP!!!
