Thanks, it's comfy here.
I'm not one for Shakespeare. I love the stories and humor, but can't get over the writing and subtle phrasing. Any other recommendations for the more casual high school reader? Doesn't have to be too easy, just not Shakespearean. Sophie's World comes to mind, if you want me to put a pin on reading level.
As for speedreading, I guess I just want to rid myself of that internal voice as I read.
