My own result?

I’m 376% faster than the UK national average with a speed of about 1,190 words per minute

My reading speed was 1190 words per minute

My reading speed

The last time I did a speed reading test was when I was about 12 years old and I measured 499 words per minute then. The problem with these results? Friends and family think I don’t savour or enjoy books as much because I don’t spend as much time reading. On the contrary, I derive great pleasure from a great many books and can recall many snippets from the books I’ve read.

Take the test for yourself. And if you’d like to compare results, just drop a comment below 😉
