  1. I'm dyslexic so knew I'd be slower. I was at 246. I've learned a few speed reading tips but didn't use them here because I loose comprehension when I do them. I love reading though, so I don't let my slow speed stop me.

  2. I guessed on the quiz at the end because the time limit made me feel rushed. I love to read too. I read for pleasure and do not worry about how fast I go normally. I agree speed reading is not the goal or the best way to get through material and fully appreciate it. Still I am in college right now so it is helpful to know how to skim along and get what I need quickly.

  3. That's the secret behind my reading all those journals! I read rather rapidly.
    And, yes, ToscaSac, many of these tests don't yield the proper results because we feel the imposition of the test.
    But, read- at whatever speed you are comfortable- and enjoy the rid

  4. Oh this was just silly fun. I do not put too much stock in it. Yet I took a speed reading class and found that I knew all the tips provided. I am good at reading and reading between the lines. My comprehension is high as well. Reading is fun. Reading is fundamental. hehehehehe
