How to Read 1,000,000 Words a Week

What is your weekly word count? I read the results of a study by Xerox that stated an informed worker reads 1,000,000 words per week. Let’s put that in perspective. 1,000,000 is the same as reading the book War and Peace twice! I took apart my week to see how much I read so I could prioritize my reading and find some way to better manage the time I spend reading - I hope you do the same. I did not include any pleasure reading or content to help me learn new things. I only included the work-related reading that is needed to be functional in my job and stay current.
