The act of reading consumes spoons.
Moving your eyes across the letters, forming them into words, interpreting their syntax, reflecting on their meaning, integrating it into memory - all of this combines into a high-focus activity consuming finite brain resources. It can stealthily deplete you. If you're mentally exhausted, think about how much you're reading, not just what you're reading.
