Keep on Top of the Pile: On your daily schedule, set aside a block of time called "Reading", preferably at the same time each day so you become habituated to a reading routine.
Reduce Volume to essentials things and then read them in the way appropriate to that specific task
Read for Purpose: e.g. get an overview; read to do an assignment; read for studying (reading to access information), in-depth insight into a theory, argument, process; prepare for a seminar
Don't Panic: Don't let the reading list on the syllabus scare you. Professors don't expect you to read it all. They are simply giving you additional reference, insights into topic, etc.
