How fast do you read?

pile of books

AJ thinks I read really quickly. He bases this on when we are reading in the same room and I turn 4 pages to his 1. I think I read faster than him purely out of necessity – my time to read is so limited that I try to get as much done as I can when I can! According to this reading test I read 540 words a minute, making me 116% faster than the average with 100% comprehension (it is a massively flawed test, but fun to do!).

And therefore, I could read:

War and Peace in 18 hours and 8 minutes.

The Lord of the Rings in 14 hours and 46 minutes

The Grapes of Wrath in 5 hours and 14 minutes.

Ha! I’m sure I can’t read The Grapes of Wrath in just over 5 hours, but maybe I could…!

How did you go?
