I'm applying to uni to study English and American studies. The school has a list of subjects on their web I will have to take and every subject has a list of set text I will be required to read.
I estimated the number of books and pages I will have to read and I nearly fell of a chair.
It's 77 books (almost 21000 pages) per term.
The books are non-fictional and in English. English is not my mother tongue mind you.
I'm wondering how would you deal with this?
I'm thinking about practising skimming perhaps but what if there is a question about a little detail in an exam?
Thank you for your suggestions in advance.

Read some of them before you go to uni - will take some of the pressure off in the first few weeks and then can try and always be a little bit ahead with what you're meant to be reading. Otherwise skim read, read summaries off the internet (obviously only reputable sites where the information will be correct!)
