With Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-thon going on this weekend, I had fun browsing around different blogs and seeing what people were reading. I didn't participate in the read-a-thon myself but I do like to cheer on the participants when I get a chance.
The event inspired me to search for tips on increasing my reading speed and I came across a helpful infographic by Mindflash. I've embedded the image below.
When I read the part that says Don't Re-read, I felt like it was meant just for me - I have a tendency to go back and read over a sentence or paragraph once or twice when I really like the way it's written. I know it slows down reading, but sometimes it's worth it.
If you want to test your current reading speed, you can use this App that also compares your reading speed to the national average.
