I've recently got into reading and I'm loving it. However, I feel like I'm always focussing on trying to finish each book as quickly as possible, almost like it's a competition. Each free moment I have I think "oh I should try to get that book finished", and I'm always focussing on how many pages I have left till the next chapter or till the end of the book.

Has anyone else experienced this? How do I learn to just slow down and take the time to appreciate the book?

Never happened to me. I read slow sometimes when the book is too exciting just so it won't finish quick.
