This Sea Beside Me


i'm drowning in a sea of books and i want to read them all. how i wish i'm dr. teresita calderon. the fastest reader in the world, a woman, and a filipino. she used to read 25,000 words per minute with 100% comprehension. two years ago, my brother narrated that she was tested again by this agency in the US and well, she could then read 80,000 words per minute, again at 100% comprehension. these piles of books beside me would be mincemeat to her. but here i am. and here i go since i have no choice. to read and note-take in a sea of books.
