Same here. Especially bad since I almost always read horror and weird fiction at night.

Re: Worst Habits as a Reader?

Not being a reader, but a postmodernist. 'How can i use this/apply this to my own work?' all the time when reading fiction.
Reading historical or non-fiction stuff only as location-scouting for works in progress.
