  • I've read a book in a bath before. Admittedly, a very long bath. But it [amazon.com] was also a fairly long book - 800 pages or so.

    My mother couldn't believe that I'd really read it. So I had her flip to a random page and start reading until I figured out where it was and then tell her the plot at that point in the book. After doing this 3-4 times with me figuring it out within a paragraph or two, my mother believed me.

    We wound up estimating my reading speed at something like 900 WPM. My reading speed has varied over the years (when I read lots of technical material, it drops, fantasy and sci-fi raise it), but I don't think it has ever been better than that.
