I do think 8 weeks is too long. I was always taught that the actual reading of the book shouldn’t take more than a week-2 weeks depending on length. I typically introduce the book and assign chapters so that we are done with it in less than two weeks (we can do it in one of its shorter)

But then we might spend another two weeks discussing/rereading specific paragraphs and doing projects/assessment. So it’s typically 4, maybe 5 weeks in total. You’re right that other stuff easily interrupts! I have also pared back on some extraneous activities because I think it does drag the book out to become less enjoyable if you spend so long studying it!
