A study of reading habits

Google reader screenshot, initially noted for "3,333" and "63,963":

The fact that I process my feeds at a basically flat rate through the day is a little at odds with my subjective sense that I do most of my reading in the mornings. It's possible that the statistics are missing an important qualitative distinction between teaser-viewing and actual reading. But I'm also more severely internet-addicted than I like to admit. For some reason I very strongly associate my desk with procrastination (a point that a photograph would buttress if I had a camera)... it is easier to be productive anywhere else.

(The 7-8 pm spike of mostly unread articles is the arxiv dump.)
