POST AWAY!

This is with just grasping the bare essence.
You read between 600 - 650 words per minute. Extremely efficient reading level. (The average rate is between 200 - 250 words per minute.) It is assumed that you did not skim the words nor fail to understand the meaning of what was read.

When I read more in detail.
You read between 450 - 500 words per minute. Well above average reading level. (The average rate is between 200 - 250 words per minute.) It is assumed that you did not skim the words nor fail to understand the meaning of what was read.

I got above average at 250-300 words a minute. Then again I usually don't measure my reading speed with how fast I can read in a minute but how fast I can read a book. To put it bluntly, on my first read through of Frankenstein I read the book in under three hours. I got the same time with Lord of the Flies, five hours with The Grapes of Wrath, and I read all of Atlas shrugged in a little over twelve hours. So yah, it's not about the words it's about the whole picture.

Clearly, you skim far too much. Like when you read this:
