  1. You have seventy-nine books already read. How do you accomplish such a feat? I imagine you have work and other things you need to attend to. How do you read so much. How fast do you read? And how came you to read so fast that you can finish so much literature in such short time.

  3. SOQ – Thanks for the comment. I do read much more quickly than average, but it’s not something I can explain how to do. I’ve always been a fast reader. I do find that the more I read, the faster I read, but it’s just something I’ve always been able to do!
