A Quest to Read One Book a Day for 365 Days

The headline made me think for a second that this was another one of those bogus speed-reading claims, but Nina Sankovitch has a rule for this to be possible:

By necessity she mostly sticks to books 250 to 300 pages or fewer — Thomas Pynchon’s paranoid primer “The Crying of Lot 49,” for example, rather than the weightier, in all ways, “Gravity’s Rainbow.” But on March 1, she made it through all 560 pages of “Revelation,” by C. J. Sansom, a murder mystery set in Tudor England.
