Mumbling Mondays - Long Chapters versus Short Chapters

Lately while I am reading I find myself counting pages of the chapter I am about to read.  If it is five pages or less I have a little hooray inside.  When it is over 5 pages..well a lot of the time I put the book down and come back to it later. If you can imagine that then you will understand why I have not been reading much.  

I find that counting the pages, whether short or long, it is taking me out of the story.  It has been a while since I have read something for an hour or two just emerged in the story.  My TBR pile keeps growing and the dread of long chapters in books keeps me from reading.  

Only thing I can think of doing is stop counting and just enjoy. Although short chapters will always be my favorite.

Do you count chapters?  Do you prefer short or long chapters?  Or do you not care either way?
