Before you read, decide your reason for reading, are you reading for pleasure or for obtaining information?
There is a difference and the way you approach is therefore different. If you are reading for fun, you have complete freedom, you can skip information, skim through the story, or even you can stop reading if you become bored. You can speed up your reading or slow it down. You can read any way you please.
In the other hand if you are reading for information, the story is different. You need to pay attention to what you read and if the word is blocking your way you check it up, you read slowly and try to get as much as you can from the text, you as yourself questions about what you are reading and think about it. The topic sentences make you think and you search for the titles and you want to make sure you don't lose any thing.
So think about the reason you are reading then start to read.
