Not dyslexia, but what is it? Help me read more books!

I often have to repeat reading a sentence many times before the cadence of the words is correct and then makes sense: DO you want cake? do YOU want cake? do you WANT cake? do you want CAKE?

I love books, but I hate the process of reading. I see words just fine, and use many coping skills: a card to keep track of the line of text that I am at, and reading out loud to myself. My reading comprehension has tested very high, but the process of reading is tedious and time consuming. I would like to be able to finish a book in a few days, like all my friends can, instead of a few weeks. I can't help thinking if this thing had a name, I might know how to improve my situation.
Audio books have absolutely changed my life, but I crave a good quiet read in bed on a Sunday morning, or even just reading on loud public transport to pass my time.
