Read it. It takes you five weeks to read one book?

Read it, it's a very good book.

Audio Book. Preferably stored on MP3 if possible, so you can listen to it while travelling, eating, building, etcetera.

Imagine my mom is standing behind you. I can reliably read 400-500 page books in like three days with that method, only without the imagining part.

Depending on what you have to do once you are done, SparkNotes summaries and analyses may be a more pragmatic option if you really are that lazy (I don't use it so I can't tell you what it's like).

Dude, your relationship with your mom sounds terrible.

But seriously, I can read. I just feel to lazy to read the book, but I don't know. I might really like it. This was a terrible troll.

I swear, Colette's Mom needs to be an official BrikWars character. The eternal love/hate triangle: Warhead, Colette's Mom, PedoNuker.

You should ask your mom what the view is like up in her helicopter.

Cliffs notes is a thing that exists.

When I have to read a book for a class or something, I read a chapter or two a day depending on how much time I have. After the chapter is read I reward myself with candy. You can replace drugs and alcohol with candy if you want, but I like candy more.

How dare you. dilanski's dad exists to amplify awesomeness. Colette's mom exists to destroy it. They could hardly be more opposite.

If dilanksi's dad is the Deadly Spaceman, then Colette's Mom is the Nega-Bloktrix.

Nah, they're not really compatible. Here's how I see them:

Deadly SpaceMan: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/M ... CoolToLive
dilanski's dad: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/M ... Juggernaut

Nega-BlokTrix: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ZergRush
Colette's Mom: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/M ... lMatriarch

Nega BlokTrix wants to flood the universe with shitty versions of everything. Colette's Mom just wants to have total manipulative control over PedoNuker and goes to any length necessary to prevent him from ever being able to make a decision for himself or turning into an independent person.
