    I've stumbled upon on an interesting thing.

    http://www.readingsoft.com/ (not promoting or affiliated with it)

    This website checks how many words you can read per minute (wpm).

    Click "Start", read the whole text and than "Finish" at the bottom.

    Post your results.

    It gave me 300+ wmp, but I'm not a native speaker/reader, so it's hard for me in English.

    Another important thing is comprehension, did you understand all of it ?

    I probably did, but only 80-85%, not more.

    My result was rather embarrassing at 215 wpm but then again I never liked reading and I'm kinda on the slow side at this time... Meh then again I was always rather slow with everything. I'm also a non native, but IMO as long as you know the language pretty well, being non native shouldn't affect you much.

    Mine was 247, so nobody feel discouraged. It's fascinating to know something so random about oneself. Thank you lakim0​

    300 is better than average I guess, I wish I could read 1k words per minute.

    There are over 2 000 books lying on shelves at my back, I wanna read them all :D

    Too bad this doesn't incorporate how quickly you decide whether something is worth reading...

    If that was the case, I guess the sky would be the limit for my wmp. :D

    Edit: Just came across an interesting site, I think looking further into this will make my life easier.

    Now that, is amazing.

    The correlation is a funny one, the slower you read the lower the comprehension, the faster you read the higher the comprehension.

    Stop trolling, I don't think anyone can read with 3k+ wpm speed here :D

    If I could do that, I'd be the most intelligent person on earth )
