Are you a speed reader?
Some people can read 500 page books in a day. Can you read that fast?
Not at all. If I am really interested in something, I double read every chapter slowly. If I am not interested, but still have to, no one can make me read it, even myself....
no, you also have to have been smart enough not to fry your brain with drugs when you were younger, this is my excuse of why I think I'm not a speed reader, and my attention span is very short...woohoo chinese!
No, but I wish I was. My wife can read for hours at a time. I cannot. Either my eyes get tired, or I get bored with the excessive details some authors include. I read mostly short stories, but I would love to be able to read a 500 page book in an hour or less.
I am not a speed reader but I am very quick. A 400 page book is totally possible for me if I am interested. It took me two years to read 'The Diary of Anne Frank' when I was a teen though. It depressed me too much.
I am not , but I guess like with everything else there are many who can . They have my sincere blessings because it's a great thing.
I am a very fast reader. If a book is very good, sometimes I try to slow myself down to make it last longer, but this is almost impossible for me... I average about five books a week unless I am on vacation--then about double that.
No, but one of my daughters is. She'd devour a couple of her stack of books that she'd just checked while the rest of us were still checking ours out! The poor librarians never got used to her returning those books when she hadn't even left the library. Personally, I'm glad I'm NOT a speed reader. I like to take my time and savor the words on each page, plus I think it's something of an insult to the author to race through words that took him/her months or years to put on those pages.
Definitely not! I do sometimes think there is something wrong with me, that I don't seem to be able to read as quickly as most of my contemporaries! Bit I love reading and finishing a decent ssized novel always feel likes a great achievement!
Sometimes. When I was younger I got the big thick Harry Potter books and I read them in about a day, but now I've slowed down and take my time reading books so I can fully digest everything.
No I am not a speed reader nor am I speedy in any way. In my school we used to have to stand up and read out loud, prose, poetry, whatever the teacher instructed us. We also had to read aloud in French as well as English.
When my grandmother's sight began to fail I would go to her room & read to her and as she was also a little hard of hearing, had to read slowly and loudly.
I find it very difficult to understand young people today who speak fast and slur their words, I wish sometimes they included diction in school curriculums.
