    Good luck! I love Darren Shan and Robert Ludlum. A-level maths is also a riveting read.

    What is the secret to getting through almost one book per day?

      Literally to just sit and read. I used to get through a novel a day just because I had nothing else to do. Sometimes more than that. I think it took me just about a week to read the Nightside series (twelve books).

      I'd prefer to read fewer and actually be able to reflect on think about what I'm reading
      Also, how does a student manage this?

      I'm on a gap year at the moment, so I have spare time in buckets!

      Thanks! I think Tootles has it spot on. Just keep reading, and the books will fall!
