In work today, some of my colleagues sent around this reading test which allows you to compare your reading speed to the US national average. The first test I tried, I read at my comfortable pace and was 88% faster than the US average. When I tried the second test with a different text I decided to go for it, but it wouldn’t be enjoyable for a leisurely read. You can see my results below.
