I am about to start my third year in studying mathematics and it has never been required of us to do background reading. I really like the subject and there are some aspects of it (as well as a tiny bit of physics) that I have an inclination to find out more about. However, I've simply not bothered with background reading because I would rather do something that makes me feel happy, I have managed to get a first in all but one of my modules so far without that much of it, and when I read too much unfamiliar content for too long my mind tenses up.
I feel like I should be doing A LOT more background reading but I simply don't feel like doing it. I am also doing a Masters course at the same uni (and I also want to do a PhD) - how can I ease myself into getting into this habit without making me feel like I have to do it for the sake of it? I also get the impression that I need to do more background reading if I want to go further on in academia...
More background reading?
