On average, how many pages of programming books can you read per hour?
Is it normal to take several minutes to read a single page or do I have ADD?

I know that people learn through repetition so I do multiple readings of a technical/educational book from beginning to end. The first reading is to open my mind to the ideas. The second reading develops a deeper understanding of the basic ideas. The third reading consolidates the knowledge and brings out little details that I have missed. I give myself the period of three months to do these multiple readings.

You need a fourth reading: the "deep osmosis" read. This will open your mind to the book as object.

You're not limited to three readings to learn a book. I've read books where I've done 10 readings from front to back and this doesn't include reading targeted portions to get a specific bit of knowledge. I normally find that three readings is the absolute minimum I need to get a fair course of the knowledge contained within the book. The great thing about doing more than three readings is that since you understand the material fairly well, you can complete a reading from front to back very quickly. The combination of repeating the knowledge and comprehending the text will exercise your brain which helps you work through your next book that you want to learn.

I usually read chapters out of order based on my needs or interests, sometimes up to 10 books going at once.
