Take the Test: How Fast Do You Read?


We stumbled across a rather interesting online test this morning — it’s a measure of how quickly you read, and how this compares the US national average. You probably won’t be surprised to know that, as avid book geeks and voracious readers, Flavorpill reads pretty fast — although we still only manage about 10% the pace of the world speed-reading champion, one Anne Jones (pictured), who can apparently chew through a remarkable 4,700 words a minute. She apparently read the final Harry Potter book in 47 minutes on its release, later reviewing it for UK newspaper The Independent (who presumably scooped everyone else as far as getting their review out first went.) Anyway, take the test after the jump, and let us know how you fared!
