    You read 167 words per minute.
    That makes you 33% slower than the national average.


    I knew I was pretty slow. If I'm reading for enjoyment, I take it slow and try to make sure I can fully imagine what's going on. If I'm reading for education/work/training, I'll read a little bit faster but I still try to make sure I fully comprehend everything so I might go back and reread something I just read seconds before.

    I read really slow but I usually read for comprehension so I don't have to read it twice. I used to cram 200+ pages right before a test once through and would typically score really high on the exam. Start out at midnight, read for 2-3 hours, fall asleep for an hour or 2, read for 3 hours, sleep for an hour, read until I needed to take the test.

    Actually, that just makes me skilled at guessing on multiple choice.

    Real result, without cheating:

    You read 624 words per minute.
    That makes you 150% faster than the national average.

    Which books would you recommend?

    In Portuguese, I read like 300-400 words per minute. My score in English will likely be horrible. I plan to improve it someday.

    You read 595 words per minute.
    That makes you 138% faster than the national average.

    3 out of 3 on the questions.

    I've never really had much interest in attempting to increase my reading speed. Perhaps I'll look at some relevant information now that I'm thinking of it.

    478 wpm, but I know I skip over a lot when I do that, so I try to make myself read more slowly and carefully. When I did that, I got about 350.

    I want to see what @Lark gets.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
