Burn-out is real and the going gets tough at the end of the second semester of your 1L year. In a few short months, the clock will read 3:00am and your face will be buried in a casebook or supplement. There's no need to rush it.

However, there's little value reading ahead when you don't have a syllabus or otherwise have any idea what to read. Sure, you could take a scatter-shot approach and just read entire supplements, but that's such a waste of time and I doubt most people would be able to retain and recall all that information when it counts (months from now).
