    Hi Everybody.

    I'm having problems understanding and deciphering the text in psyhcology text books that I'm reading. I've never been a big reader. There is nothing wrong my reading, writing, spelling or grammar, just my interpretation and comprehension of the text I'm reading. It's starting to become very tiresome going over a paragraph three or four times just to understand it and then when I think I've grasped it I'm not sure. It isn't clicking so to speak.

    Is this because the subject is very new (although the things I'm reading aren't written in jargon particlarly although some are) or maybe because I've never been a reader as such and didn't develop my reading skills at a young age?

    I read newspapers, articles, websites etc but never books but obviously at uni now and have to. Only ever read one book in my life and that was about 13 years ago.

    I've toyed with the idea I could be dyslexic but words don't get jumbled up or anything like that and my spelling is pretty good. It's more my understanding and interpretation of the text I'm reading.

    Anybody help?
