How Fast Do You Read?

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?
