The Advantages of Speed Reading

Business L70 Essay

I was asked the question of, “What would it take for Dr. North to persuade me to use a program to increase my reading speed for 10 minuets a day?”  My answer is that as of right now I do not desire to improve my reading speed. Speed reading is not just about being able to read crazy fast, its also about being able to comprehend what you’re reading while doubling the speed in which you read it. I took a reading test and I read 734 word per minute. This is why I don’t think that I will be able to double my reading speed. Very few people have even tried acquire a speed reading skill, let alone read 1,468 word per minute. I love to read, I read all the time, I even get in trouble some times for reading when I should be sleeping! I think I read fast because I do it ALL THE TIME! I mean what can I say? It’s a skill and a gift, and I will take advantage of it whenever I can. I would also encourage everyone else to read,and to try to read well (by “well” I mean fast and comprehensible). Its fun, it gives us experience in areas where would never actually be able experience,etc… I could go on and on listing great reasons why reading is important, but enough said.
