I know this is kind of antithetical to the Goodreads Reading Challenge, but…perhaps slow down and try one book at a time?

I know, I know, Goodreads says you’re ten books behind on your challenge. It also says you’ve got to read three every week to finish it on time, or something like that. The pressure is on! But have you considered…reading one book at a time?
