Why don't you try once, while reading very exciting book, to ocasionally make short pauses, which you would use for checking what time it is (the clock is already prepared, at the night table).
You would notice few things.
1) Time is passing by very slowly (the last time you glanced the clock was barely 10 minuts ago)
2) Neither minute has passed in vain.
3) You'd have the experience of time as a dense smooth substance filled with a cream.
