Reading Faster

I'll just have to admit it: I stole from Brian again.


Here's an automated system for reading faster. It takes 7 minutes to run. (From InfMind).

My speed went from 507 words per minute to to 671 words per minute after only running this exercise once. The downside: I've been able measure how long I've been reading easily (100 pages to an hour, pretty exactly.) Now I have to up my mental arithmetic to keep up :-/

  • Exercise reading speed regularly and you may yet beat me :-)

  • Mine was 649 before the demo for subvocalized reading, 1003 for nonvocalized reading, 2006 for skimming. The regular speed increased to 698 after the demo. Diminishing returns, it seems. -MB/Bergen-
