I’m 39% faster than most adults reading close to 350 words per minute. Pretty neat. How do you rank?

You read 627 words per minute.
That makes you 151% faster than the national average.

Can you believe that! hahaha. I scored 2/3 so I passed.

I love this thing. I loved at reading comprehension in school. It says I read 1,206 words per minute and 382% faster than average. I could read War and Peace in 8 hours. Lol. That actually sounds like a good idea.

@ Grace… wow! I wish I could read as fast as you! That would mean my TBR mountain wouldn’t be as daunting!

My score was 813 words/min. making me 225% faster than avg. But if you look at their scale, I rank with the college kids. Huh… considering I didn’t finish college, that makes me feel better!
