Tips for reading faster

Brain’s been feeling a little dull lately. Too much FFXI and 5-6 hours of sleep a day.

Here’s some reading tips I learned about the other day from reading this book. Supposedly increases your reading speed. Works well for me but I still need more practice.

1) Concentration. Well… It’s a basic requirement.

2) Read with your eyes. Don’t read and pronounce every single word. Your brain can actually work fast but if you try to pronounce every word, you’re slowing yourself down. They call this subvocalization.

3) Read every word right the first time so you don’t have to read the same word twice to re-confirm. This is also where concentration plays an important role.

Let me know if it works for you. [:D]
