I answered the questions correctly, but then I re-read War of the Worlds recently, so a couple of the them were obvious Wink

I won't embarass myself myself with my score but it wasn't good lol. But I am dyslexic so I read it slow and didn't remember much about what I read. My only adult read books are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Tom's Midnight Garden Grin

I used to be a proof reader and speed reading was the name of the game.

I got two questions right but proof reading wasn't about comprehension, it was about spotting errors so my reasons for being able to do it aren't quite what they're looking for here.

Thats an interesting test. I got 442 wpm first time round and had another go with different text. I admit I was skim reading but took in enough to answer all the questions correctly

You read 433 words per minute.
That makes you 73% faster than the national average.

I answered all 3 questions correctly too.

I'm happy with that, I like to picture in my mind what I'm reading and savour it, I love reading, always have.

I read as "how fast can you read", I normally read a lot slower
