So a friend of mine posted the results of a reading speed test on her Plurk account, and I couldn’t resist trying it out. You can try it here too:

According to the test, I read 546 words per minute. That means:
- My reading speed is somewhere between the reading speed of average college students and high level executives
- I can apparently read War and Peace in 17 hours and 56 minutes.
- I can read 7.2 books on Kindle before recharging.
- I apparently read more slowly than I thought.
What’s your reading speed? Is it what you expected?
