I only scored 250-300 words. I guess I'm a slow reader.
Keep the tests coming. I think they are fun.

I scored 300-350. But I love that story. Willa Cather is one of my favorite authors.. I love her imagry.. I fiorst read her in 6th grade, andx I'll never forget theimpression she made on me. MAybe if it was a different author, with less prosaic words.. I'd be able to read faster.. but to me, it's like rushing through a gourmet meal. LOLOL!!

Well I took the next test. and scored 350-400 WPM... so maybe it depends what you're reading...

350 per min for me, I like to take my time and clearly understand what I am reading!

850-900 wpm and that was because I forgot how to stop the timer! We had a speed reading class in 8th grade. It has really helped me. Now I know why I can read so many books so fast and why I prefer to learn visually than auditory.
