I don’t know if you guys know what “speed reading” is exactly, or if you have a different name for it, so let me explain. Speed reading is like a reading shortcut, when you read a book fast without reading every single word the author has written. Everyone uses a different method when you speed read. When I speed read a page, I personally read 70% of that page’s dialogue and two to four sentences from a blocky paragraph.
I don’t speed read often; I probably speed read like five times a year (but in my defense, I read a lot of books. As of today, I’ve read 167 books so far this year and I’m in college and I have a job). I only speed read when I’m reading a very slow book or if I’m deep into a book that I want to DNF, but don’t want to DNF that book because I’ve already spent too much of my time reading it. I keep speed reading until I reach a part of the book that would grab and hold my interest or until the book picks up since most books usually picks up at the end.
How about you guys? Do you speed read? Why?
