Do you read quick and forget most things? Read slowly and sometimes reread a page? Skip a couple of pages and go back reading? Skip a couple of lines and go back reading? Read 5 minutes and quit? etc.etc.etc..

I often reread things because I'm trying to read them from the writer's perspective instead of my own, or from the target audience's perspective. Sometimes I just skim things that don't seem important, but if I notice something interesting I'll go back and read the whole thing again.

I love to read slowly every word for hours at a time. Sometime I have to read a book quickly and I do that by using a speed reading technique which is great but not relaxing. good for text books etc. And I often reread part I love the most

I read quickly if i am in hurry for another things to be done..i read first all pages that's where my interest focus. For me If i am going to read a newspaper, I read first the sport pages going to the front page. I could not easily forgot all what I read if it catches my attention and interests.I read it back to satisfy my emotion. No matter how long it will take..

I am a quick reader, but also a good reader. I remember almost everything of what I read, unless it's really boring for me. I have always enjoyed reading. I will go back and read the same book again if it's good or if it's been awhile since I read it.

It really depends on the material. If i'm studying, I will be reading slowly, trying to understand and recall the facts presented. If I'm reading for entertainment, I would be reading fast, since I'm a fast reader. If I just want to get through something and its not important, I'll skim through the material. If the book is good, I can read for hours. If it is not so good, and I have another book around, I will stop, pick up the other book, and when done with the other, maybe go back to it to finish it.

depends on what im reading. right now, im reading the books as part of our curriculum (currently studying) which i find sometimes boring... but i read 1 hour straight for it, then stop for a break... as for other books, like pocketbooks, if it is really, really, interesting, as much as possible, i don't want to put it down... :)

Try to make a gist of what's actually the main theme and then read the whole thing and finally reread the parts that most interests me or important to remember. That's what I do when reading non-fictions and study-books. While reading fiction, I don't follow any rules and think everyone should do the same too. I just read page by page, in a relaxed manner, not giving my brain (yes, I sometimes be aware of it) any extra pressure in that way. Try to follow the flow of the events and visualize myself in the midst of the story if what am reading is that much interesting. It makes the experience worthwhile.
