Shyrill Silversong (eid0l0n) | 6 comments well, i think he's just a natural.
maybe he had read many literary pieces before that his reading speed is somewhat faster than some people.
just guessing..:)

stormhawk | 1184 comments Some people have the knack of reading quickly (that's me, I've read 28 books so far this year), and sometimes the books themselves are fast reads. And although it's not as common as it used to be, some people learn a technique called "Speed Reading."

Welcome Joe!

Joseph-Daniel Peter Paul Abondius (bookaholic203) Thank You everyone. I am pretty much reading all day while on vacation. I can assure you my numbers will go down. The one way I read so fast is that I have a variety of methods. I use my kindle for some and place it on large print which deletes the urge to see how many pages. I also always have 5 books going at the same time and try to have a span of 20 % differences so that I am always finishing a book. They are also a variety of genres to make life easier and not get books mixed up
