Here is one approach:
If you have not been in school for a while, it may take a bit of time to adjust. Initially, you may only be able to read for short lengths of time before you become fatigued. Rather than be discouraged by this, use your initial experience as a benchmark against which you can measure your subsequent performance. You may even want to create a form you can use to answer the following questions:
Next, work on incremental improvement in each of these three areas. For example, if your answer to the first question is “15 minutes,” then each day try to increase it by five minutes. After just one week (seven days of reading) you will increase your effective reading time from 15 minutes to 45 minutes. If you study on a consistent basis, you will, by the end of ten weeks, achieve a noticeable improvement in effective reading time, process speed, and comprehension.
