How fast can you read? Test yourself
My score was 477 per minute in this timed test (which apparently is 91% faster than the rest of the population if you’re feeling competitive.) Click the screen above to have a go yourself. There’s a short test at the end so you can prove that you read for meaning and that at least some of it sunk it.
My score suggests I should be able to read War and Peace in 20 hours 30 minutes. No, I couldn’t, not with all those long Russian names to trip me up…
