Beaten to that one.

You read between 550 - 600 words per minute. Highly 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.

Well I am the best in my class.

If you can read that fast, it's surprising that you can't seem to write.

your brain always try to read and wright at the same speed. not to mention it more physical then mental ;D
Life is not measured by the amount of times you fall down but by the number of times you get back up again.

350 to 400. I'm surprised, I always thought of myself as a slow reader. I might have unconsciously cheated though, that would be typical.

Yeah, I'm the fastest reader I actually know. And I read more than most people I know, so that probably helps. But probably there are some people here on GS who read more quickly than I do.

I got 100-150 words per minute.

Not too shabby, I'm quite happy with that.

You read between 500 - 550 words per minute. Very good 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.

You read between 650 - 700 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.

Not bad, about what I was expecting to get. I think I was distracted for a second in the middle trial.

Oh shut up Blitz.

See? Your worse. You were bragging about something we don't care about, and HelloWorld was saying something completely relevant to the topic.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

you tell him, AW!

although, technically, HW would've been equally if not more relevant if he had posted in one of the numerous Harry Potter threads, but...I guess I just like nitpicking  :P

When I was Reading slowly and thinking about it I got 100-150 words per minute.  But when i read as fast as i could but still taking it all in I got 250-300 words per minute.

If you were reading as fast as you could you may of got lower because of a little error in the timer, if you press  start twice it goes up in two's, if you press it 5 times it goes up in five's ect..

600-650.

But I wouldn't read like that normally.
Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy.

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