    I read at 212 wpm with 91% comprehension. I haven't read a book in probably 3 years, and even though I'm on the computer a lot, I think most of my time is spent watching something or playing games.

    Don't have time to take the test right now, but did a test at school yesterday(in danish) and got 300 WPM with 100% correct answers to the questions afterwards. Gonna take the test later and post again.

    Apparently 850wpm with 91% comprehension. But I know I can read much faster than that with around the same accuracy.

    According to my parents I started reading at around the age of 3-4. Surprised both my parents and my teachers since I never went to pre-school and my parents didn't know any better. By the time I was in year 4 (9 years old for non-UK people) I had the reading ability of an adult. I freaking love reading. If I could, I would spend all day reading books.

    A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.

    967wpm, 91% comprehension. Yeah, I read a lot.

    [edit] That's while eating lunch, too.

    367 wpm and only 76% comprehension.
    Meh, between average and good reader. Almost at "good" lvl. I don't enjoy reading, and I never read books, so not surprising. My reading consists of online newspapers, forums and other crap.


    Would be better in Norwegian, but i'm not one to worry about this. Being a little above average is fine with me.

    280 wpm with 100% comprehension I'm intentionally a slowish reader though as I had always thought it was better to understand than to quickly run through it

    540WPM, + 60% comprehension,
    Could be better comprehension if I slowed down a little. Helps that I read several books a month and at least 2 newspapers a day as well as forums

    Only 382WPM and 100% comprehension. I guess my mum was right, I am slow (Compared to my parents who can both pull 450+ with 100%).

    366 WPM, 100% comprehension. I'm mostly glad that I got the 100% comprehension, not too bothered about a high reading speed. Quality over quantity!

    469 with 91% comprehension. I'm sort of an on/off reader, sometimes I'll start reading 2 books a day for a couple of weeks and then not read any books for months

    I got 366wpm and 91% comprehension! Above average at least.

    I don't think I could ever pull off 700wpm with a high comprehension.

    Not even gonna try it, probably gonna be low. xD I'm anything but a reader, as the most I read is on these forums or mangas. Maybe the occasional news article.

    457 wpm with 91% comprehension. Would prob be lower with a book, or kindle in my case. I don't read that much and have a habit of having to re-read pages cause I don't take anything in but I read heaps at my pc.

    Apparently 1088 wpm. That seems excessively high, though I do tend to consume books considerably faster than anyone I know (to the point where I stopped buying hardcovers and switched to Kindle to store them all)...so maybe it's true.

    Not a reliable test, though, since you click the buttons yourself.

    218, 85% comprehension...., i have 85% comprehension cause i'm bad with numbers XD (i forget really fast the details that are shown in numbers), if you don't have any number in a text i have 100% comprehension :P

    I did the test again and got 660 with 82% comprehension. It's probably a bit skewed now though since I'm doing it the second time and I somewhat know what the content is. Still, I'm glad I improved.

    I was repeating the ABCs in my head to stop myself from auditory reading.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    You read at 442 words per minute.

    I'm useless at reading large blocks of text, not only that, I can never remember what i just read in such a large amount of text, one of the reason's why i don't read books
