Apparently
You read 590 words per minute.
That makes you 136% faster than the national average.
I'm assuming that's a US national average. Check your score here: http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/marketing/technology-research-centers/ereaders/speed-reader/index.html

Heh- 1330 wpm (432% x national average). However, my retention rate is very low, which isn't covered by that test- if I'd had to answer the questions in a little while later, I wouoldn't have done so well.

2132 and 753%. Though that was with a "shit, where's the scrollbar gone?" moment midway.

I know I used to be able to (not sure if I still can) read a lot faster but forced myself to slow down so I retained more of the information. Shame it didn't slow my book buying down too!
