Top readers could read at a speed of 1,000 words per minute (wpm) with an 85% reading comprehension; while the average readers can read 200 words per minute with a 60% reading comprehension says readingsoft.com. Only 1% of readers belongs to top readers while the average readers belong to the majority. I am neither a slow nor a fast reader. I can adjust my reading speed depending upon the kind of reading materials that I'm reading. How fast can you read? Are you an average or fast reader? Picture credit: instantseries.com

I've never checked how many words I can read per minute (maybe I will do it once), but I know that I am a fast reader. When I have to memorize a text or a book, I am a slow reader, but I don't mind it because it is very affective. I can read a book at one night and I can memorize 100 pages per day.
