I took 7 min 59 sec to read 1187 words... and the calculated speed of reading was 149 words per min. when i looked up in google to check what a decent reading speed usually is, i was not surprised. I knew i am a slow reader but i get a feeling today that i am pathetically slow :(
The average college student reads between 250 and 350 words per minute on fiction and non-technical materials. A "good" reading speed is around 500 to 700 words per minute, but some people can read 1000 words per minute or more on these materials.
110 wpm, slow reader, but you have many possibilities for improvement. 240 wpm, oral reader. You may rapidly and significantly progress by suppressing subvocalization. 400 wpm, auditory reader. 1000 wpm, visual reader. Your reading speed is the gem of your CV.
Mindspace acts as therapy to me.. In every state of mind, be it of bliss, proud, surprise, being plump, confusion, cry-baby, embarrassment, evil, grump, impatience, mean, obnoxious, sad, even sleepy, if I feel like blurting out something without worrying about anyone listening to me, I come to my blog and pour my heart out. That’s how it started. But now this blog world is pulling me in. I am enjoying people reading me & vice versa. You are most welcome here :) I offer you my little experiences on the journey called life and hey! I give high regards to honest comments on my writing so please do not hesitate to let me know what you think about whatever I write. cheers.
