On Speed Reading

Have you ever known someone who was always speed reading through something? Books. Newspaper. Online articles. Anything. I’m not sure if I have, but WordPress always helps me see the light.

There are speed reading apps. There are people who read at ridiculous paces. I just don’t know what the big rush is. It kind of reminds of the rush to publish that so many writers have in mind. I mean, I guess I could understand it if everyone doing it were in grad school conducting research. But they’re not. They’re just reading for fun.

I imagine that some of you are thinking that “There’s not even time for me to read all the books I want to read.” I don’t see that as a valid argument because the same person who says that rereads the same books every year. What a joke.

What do you think of speed reading?
