/Serious Question

I find that a lot of people are in the same situation where they feel they must "catch up" with their peers but do not actually take anything away from the books they read, movies they watch, or music they listen to.

EDIT: I realize how much of an ******* this makes me sound like but I promise you i was actually trying to gauge how you viewed and digested the various media you are talking about. I have a friend who prides himself on having listened to all of Dmitri Shostakovich's symphonies at least once (that's more than a dozen 45-60 minute symphonies) but he can't really tell me what he learned from doing so
