Reading Speed - Update

Its an update on my reading speed i wrote about last week here

I don't know if any of those who read/commented there took the test also and what their speed was; but 149wpm to me sounded too less. Because its another matter when u are intentionally reading slow to enjoy the content, i was knowingly doing a speed test and the popup saying i am a slow reader was like a slap on me :o .. a light one though :P

Just by reading on the reason why one reads slow helped to begin with. I downloaded a 10 day trial software and like one plays games on the computer, i did some 'flash', 'group' and 'speed' reading.

Yday night I took the timed test again and the result was-
247wpm with 86%comprehension. (n thats after averaging 10 tests taken at one go.)

up by almost 100 wpm, just by knowing the reasons why we read slow usually and around 20 min reading exercise for 3 days in a wk.. wat say?? Can I take it upto 500wpm.. If i can do that, comprehension gaya tel lene..
