    Wow, I’m simply amazed at the speed at which you read. You’ve read more books this year than I’ve read in my lifetime! But still, you somehow manage to digest each book’s content rather well. I’m impressed 🙂

      Oh, you’re making me blush! I do read a little faster than average, but sometimes I find that I miss some of the finer details in the book. That’s why when I find that I really like a book, I mark it down for a second read.

      But otherwise, I think quality matters more than quantity, no? 😉
