Here are a few ideas. Let me know if they help or distract you:
First, you must lower your standards. It is not possible to achieve as much as you could with an easy book when it comes to scoring well on a test or developing the bad reading habits that endeavor forms in you if you want to read something more challenging. You won't remember as much. You won't understand as much. You won't be able to imitate as easily.
But you'll remember more that is worth remembering, you'll understand life and yourself better, and you'll be more humble before the masters.
