Oh, anybody can read fast. I can read very fast (skimming) but I don’t retain the data when I read that fast. The key is understanding what you read!
I found an interesting test (thanks for the link, Karen!) that tests how quickly you read AND comprehend. I think it’s a pretty cool test. Here are my results:
I do read pretty fast, but not because I am good at reading– I am terribly impatient! I often skim a page quickly to absorb all the verbs (action) and move on. And some books I read slower than others, some I read faster. It all depends.
Cute quiz, though. I thought it was well done and it’s certainly informative! Take the Staples How Fast Do You Read test.
