Yeah, that blows me away too, even though I think they noted it was a 'long' weekend -- it takes me several weeks to plow through the entire 10 book series, and I seem to read at a fairly fast clip (read Battlefield Earth
's 1066 pages in 6 days, on the first run through). Fortunately for my ego, I've already been disabused of my speed-reading delusions by my wife, who thinks that Jane Eyre
is a nice afternoon's diversion. And she's nothing to one of her professors who won't watch the Sense and Sensability
screenplay because she can read it faster than the show runs.
