Default Marimba

So I started playing Marimba this last summer, I managed to buy a student two-octave model for $500 (extreme luck and kindness.) And I've got all my major and minor scales learned and can recite most of my triads pretty quickly. I'm working on successive thirds (C-E, D-F, E-G) so on.

Where should I go from here? Should I just keep reading music from the Goldenberg book?

My goals are to be able to sight read really well and play jazz music on marimba.

What I'm asking for what are things to practice to get good, quick? I know that those two things in a music context are an oxymoron but you guys know what i mean
