Thanks Star Dust, it has been awhile.
Last of the Mohicans was really good, so was Deerslayer, and Pathfinder, which were also in the series.
I am reading an older series, not exactly sure how old, called Frank Merriwell. They are pretty good books, something is always happening, and they are pretty funny too, some parts leave me laughing. They are about a boy that goes to a military school, and all of the adventures he has there. No, still haven't tried the speed-reading, sounds like it works though!
