    The fastest I have read is in an airplane going around 600 miles per hour. That's about 966 kmh.

    You read 1,104 words per minute.
    That makes you 342% faster than the national average.

    Woot I have always a somewhat insanely speedy reader. That one was sloppy, though. I got 2 out of 3 on the questions. It's not uncommon for me to have to go back and read a bit more slowly, again. It totally depends what kind of book it is, how interested I am, etc.

    I tend to enjoy books more the second time around, unless it's the plotline which is really gripping, and sometimes even then... If we're talking fiction, I am more fascinated by really great writing than by a really snappy storyline. A "boring" storyline can be fascinating if well developed and presented, but a snappy storyline which is badly written makes me want to kill puppies.

    You read 1,045 words per minute.
    That makes you 318% faster than the national average.

    To be fair, as i knew it was a test i focused on likely buzz words... it's not how i would usually read, i would usually read slower.

    21% faster than average.

    I always read..and reread. I'll read half a paragraph..think I've missed something..and reread a sentence or two. Most sentences get read twice...
    I wonder if that isn't common..

    I actually meant the speed reading champ:

    the world speed-reading champion, one Anne Jones (pictured), who can apparently chew through a remarkable 4,700 words a minute.
    The website is interesting and explains it a little:

    http://www.speedyreader.co.uk/what%20is.html
    There are different methods of speed reading. I use the one described in Tony Buzan's The Speed Reading Book, published by the BBC. In fact, if you look at the new edition, you will discover I have written the foreword to it.

    The type of speed reading that I teach involves using a guide as a pacer. The guide makes it easier for our eyes to track across the page. It makes a huge difference to dyslexics and it is what helps me read extremely fast.

    I can choose what speed to use. Most of the time I read at speeds varying from 800 to 1500 words per minute. I had to go into training to read as fast as I did to set a record with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It took 47 minutes and one second, at 4251 words per minute. It is a very long book!
    If he's that close to the speed reading champ maybe Haight should try to beat it?

    Do you think he will need to train first?
