    1. You beat me Sobriquet. I got 1,043 on my text (Wizard of Oz)

  4. This really bugs me, I've got a Master's from an Ivy, read everyday (often all day), and apparently it's only at an 11th grader's pace 330-350. Though apparently that is substantially faster than average adults? I wonder what I'm doing wrong.

    1. I think you may be taking in more than the rest of us and actually thinking about what you're reading :)

  5. Thanks for the Damned set-list :-)
    If Dave and the boys play that on Sunday I'll be very happy! I don't think I've ever seen them play Limit Club live, so that would be very, very cool...

    1. If you enjoy them half as much as I did you'll love it

    2. Did they play something similar?

  6. "12,639 words per minute."

    It helped that the text was from War of the Worlds, which I didn't need to read to answer the questions :) Apparently, if I was really reading at that speed, I could finish the Bible in just over 1 hour. Hallelujah!

    1. lol I think I discovered a sub-game to it: "how fast can you click the 'finished!' button after clicking the start button" :)

    2. "30,376 words per minute." I can now read the Bible in 26 minutes lol I was hoping I could break it so that I ended up being able to read the Wizard of Oz in -1 minute :)
