In math, words can mean different operations. A lot of times "of" means "multiplication". In this case he read 1/2 OF a 136 page book. So:

1/2 * 136 = 68 pages

Another way you can solve it is when we are talking about multiplying by a half, we can also just divide by 2 instead.

136 / 2 = 68 pages
