I fail!!!

I knew this was not the right time for me to do a Read-A-Thon by boutbooks but did not listen to myself...what else is new?  My apartment is having a major rehaul from floors to tubs to cabinets and even lights.  Way too much pounding and dust and no electricity all day...so I have read a total of one book and half of another.  So yes I failed but that is ok because I am only in competition with myself which never seems to end.  I always feel like I am such a slow reader and at awe with people that can read several books a week to my one.  I need pointers or secrets so I can become a faster reader but at the same time I want to enjoy my books I read so never ending battle.
