Hmm, I do the same thing. Before I changed my mind, I was an English major. All of my English papers were done the night before they were due. I have yet to find a good reason to stop doing this, because I always get excellent grades on the papers I do in a rush. *Disclaimer* I'm not recommending you start this habit. :)

I also used to have a HUGE problem sitting down to read BORING literature. I used to just not read it at all, and sometimes I still don't. I'm currently taking a Lit. class and I have read only about 25% of the assigned material. I just pay attention in class to the lectures, and I still manage great grades on the tests. On the last test I got a 98%, and never read the poem (it was Paradise Lost). But, I have found that it is quite necessary to read for other subjects, especially psychology. So, what I do for that is break up the reading into "digestable" parts. I don't read the entire thing in one night. I read by paragraphs or pages. This seems to work for me. I don't get bored with the subject (unless it was boring to begin with), and I feel like I've accomplished something after I finish the reading goal. Those are my coping skills.
