That's way more than I've accomplished in the last couple years, but I used to read that much in a normal year. I finish graduate school this summer, so before then I will probably focus on the non-fiction groups; and after graduation will read more fiction. Unless I have a breakdown in the spring semester and handle it by curling up under the covers with a bunch of brain candy. :)
My usual MO back when I was in university - spend the weekend reading fiction and then a few night studying for exams. :)
welcome on board and good luck

And you are probably right. Until you have a firm grasp of the grammar, reading in a foreign language is a pain. Once you get that... dictionaries help and it works. Good luck with your studies.
I hesitate to say it, but by this time next year I may be caught up with the Star Wars publications.
That mid-term breakdown I joked about up there? I think I've hit it.
