How to read a book efficiently?!?

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?

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.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
