Speed Reading For Fun and Leisure
Speed reading is a great skill for getting through your pleasure novels, favorite magazines and website surfing.
Now's the time to get up to speed with what you read!
I doubled my reading speed while maintaining heightened comprehension and have been able to apply these new skills to even the most technical of business/finance-related material.
This course absolutely met my expectations. It drastically increased my reading speed without losing too much comprehension. At one point during the course, my reading speed got up to 843 wpm, even though this wasn’t my ending wpm count.
I did not know it was possible to increase one’s reading speed. I thought I was stuck at a low level. I went from frustrated to excited and confident about my reading!
When reading for pleasure, some people love to savor and chew every word while others like to speed through the text looking for the action. That’s the beauty of it – there is NO test or responsibility attached to leisure reading and you can read it as you wish! However, when you learn speed reading strategies, you become a more versatile reader now capable of shifting your reading speed according to your purpose. You can also read more of your favorite material in less time! Additionally, you learn how to prioritize your reading based on your personal value and to weed through large amounts of information (both fiction and non-fiction). Becoming a confident speed reader will help you grow your knowledge -base in your personal and professional life. It’s fun to learn how to be a smarter, faster and just plain better reader!
