How do you read?

Me? A voracious reader?
Some call me that but the truth of the matter is I read when I am at home, which is not often due to my social life and business activities. But I have been working recently to become more efficient in my reading. Of course, I am read up on the latest in speed reading courses and I do use the principles outlined in these courses to help me get even more reading done than normal. But I think besides the amount of time available for reading I have a problem with the reading material itself.
For instance, I read for many reasons. One important reason is research for my writing projects. I also am a reviewer for BookPleasures.com so it is very important to get through this workload as well. And just as important is the reading that I do for my own pleasure. So damn! I have one hell of a stack of books next to my bed.
I suppose if you were to take them out and count them you’d find 25% of the books are for research, 25% for my own pleasure and 50% for review. But don’t get me wrong. I enjoy them all!
So I have been asking myself if there is a system I can create so that I can spend more time with the books I read for my own curiosity. If you know of one or if you think of one, let me know!
