How to read a book efficiently?!?

Hi,

This looks like a silly question but I'd like to know how should I read a book? Let me explain my situation: I'm a really slow reader but when I read I try to understand everything and I ask myself a hundred questions that help me understand what the book is not telling me. The pros of it is that I finish the book and I understand every aspect of it. The cons of it is that it takes me forever. So am I doing right or should I faster or any other suggestions?

Thanks!

I think it is a good approach.
I have a suggestion to increase the reading speed - jot down your questions and find the answers later. You might find that the book itself answers some quetions in later pages.
