I'm a super slow reader, but it's nothing extraordinary for me, I've always been slow at that . I've no illusions about completing this challenge. I will be happy if I managed to read 30 books

I'm so slow, I think the prob is that I read too heavy books, gotta read smth easier and not that big.

Oh and btw, I really love The Bel Jar, the problem is I have it on my computer and my eyes hurt if I read too much.
