I was encouraged after reading Drew's post about PR'ing multiple books with no expectations. I started doing that two days back. My question is :
1)I have four or five different books I want to photoread every night. Can I do it back to back or should I PR one and wait for a while before starting the next one.
2)Also when you say PR do you mean just the PR step or do you also include Prepare and preview ?
3)I seem to be getting caught up in the mechanics again :-). I notice that my shoulder starts aching after turning about 100 pages or so. Can I stop for a minute and resume or does it affect the quality of PR ?
4)Is there any (added) benefit to photoreading a book multiple times ? (Just the photoreading step). This is a book I would like to absorb fully since it deals with my money ! (stock market book about chart reading)
Many thanks in advance for taking time to answer my questions.
Bob

1) Yes, you can PhotoRead them back-to-back. Make sure you are clear on your purpose for each before the PhotoRead in order to get the best results. When I do books back-to-back I'm usually doing books that are related.

2) I would prepare and preview, but do not spend too much time on it.

3) I tend to PhotoRead most books in two sessions. If I PhotoRead to page 100, when I do the next session I will start at page 90 to make sure I'm up to speed when I hit 100.

4) I PhotoRead most books multiple times. Typcially I will PhotoRead a book on day one and activate it on day two, but I will PhotoRead it again before activation.

Every time you PhotoRead a book, you are getting it as it is relative to you at that point in time, which adds more depth to your understanding of the material.
