I was talking to a doctor I know the other day. A DO, in fact (general surgeon). We were talking about me getting ready to move to Atlanta and start school. So he asks me if I'm doing any reading. I tell him I've gotten a bunch of books, but I've only thumbed through them, and I'm not really trying to learn anything, because I didn't think I'd be able to retain enough for it to do me any good. He tells me that I should be reading for three hours a day. I asked him if he really thought I'd be able to learn enough for it to even help at all, and he told me that it didn't matter, and that the point was for me to get used to spending long days studying. He even told me that it didn't matter what I was reading. He said that, ideally, it should be medical text, but that anything would be good. Anyway, I'm not sure how much reading I'm actually going to do, but I just found that interesting. Kind of an uncommon perspective on the matter.
