How Fast Do Your Read?

At Living, Learning and Loving Life I found this cool test to tell me how fast I read. I knew I was a slow reader, but didn't think I was this slow: 192 wpm (23% slower than the national avg., about a 5th gr. level!) Gerard beat me with 195 wpm which surprised me--I thought he'd beat by more than that.

Click on the image below to go take the quiz and see if you beat us--I bet you will.  Share your results in the comments here.

  1. That was fun! I got 288 words per minute, 15% faster than the national average.

  2. I got 344 words per minute and all three questions right. I was surprised, I knew I was a fast reader, but didn't think I was that fast! Of course, it also depends on what I'm reading. YA books I can fly through, but more dense books take me longer. Loved this quiz, thanks for sharing!


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
