What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book (since learning how to read, of course)? Which book was it that helped break the dry spell?

More than two years!
And that’s mainly because of the Indian Educational System. Basically the Higher Secondary (or Junior College) level is one of the most critical part of our school life. With a billion plus population, competition is not easy. You have to be either very brilliant or very hard working. I had a bit of both and it worked for me.

Everyone should be ashamed. Everyone is at fault here.
