Now that I have a Kindle Fire, I'm realizing how little time I actually have to read. I never took a speed reading class but perhaps it's time and Readfa.st may be the solution I choose. Readfa.st is a reading improvement. After you first sign up for an account, you take a baseline assessment (currently I'm reading at 380 words a minute). The also provide comprehension quizzes and you can pull in your own articles to practice on from any website. Readfa.st only shows a certain number of words from the article as it scrolls through to help keep you focused. It's an interesting idea. It also has a social and competitive aspect in that you can friend other users of the site. Definitely worth a look.
