Hmm... Ever wondered whether you're able to read faster than the average person? I've certainly been curious to see whether the amount of books I go through has improved my reading speed so when I spotted the Staples Speed Reader Challenge at Radiant Shadows, I could hardly resist.
It turns out, after three attempts my score is fairly dependent on how interested I am in the text. My score significantly improved when Alice In Wonderland popped up, proving that I should finally make an attempt to read the childhood favourite.
Overall, my score fell just below the average college student. Roughly 279 words per minute and 12% faster than the national average.
What Does This All Mean? I Could Read:
It also means, I'd be able to read 3 books on a Sony Reader before recharging.
Take the test for yourself, then pop back over here to share your score :)
