Did you know that some people can read more than a thousand words per minute as compared to an average college student who can only read between 250 and 350 wpm?

That’s true!

Anyone can double their speed in reading without the fear of not being able to understand the materials being read.

Most people find reading rapidly difficult and risky. They are afraid that if they increase their speed reading, they might not be able to grasp the idea of what they have read.

That’s why they so often settle with reading slower that finds them finishing a novel over a longer period of time. Even worse, by not being able to read faster, they aren't able to find what they are looking for in an academic textbook for an assignment in school before the due date.

What they do not know is that, according to studies, the relationship between reading speed and comprehension is directly proportional to each other. That is, an increase in reading rate results in an increase in comprehension!

Speed Reading, often referred to as power reading, can benefit anyone. Not only will you be able to read fast, you will also be able to learn faster!

Besides being beneficial and useful, learning a skill such as accelerated reading is both simple and takes only a few techniques to apply.

Speed reading is not only useful in reading for pleasure but is also necessary when learning and studying. In these cases, time is of the essence. And if you can make things faster and a lot easier, you're less likely to get stressed out.

I guess you could say that, as you increase your 'read speed' you also increase 'speed learning'!

Whether it be novels, newspapers, magazines, or just any materials, I totally agree with you that reading can be very relaxing, interesting and often, breathtaking.

Reading brings us to another world that is different from reality. It lets us seek knowledge that cannot be learned through simple observations in everyday living. It is a never-ending journey to unexplored places where everything is magical and mysterious.
