You’ve probably had someone overreact to the speed at which you’re able to text or IM. But what if they were overreacting to the speed at which you could read a book or homework assignment?
Researchers have long understood that people can actually read much faster if they focus on only one word at a time. But the practicality of publishing books with just one word on each page, and the time it takes to flip the actual page has largely stopped that from happening…until now.

So is reading this quickly the next big thing? Vote in the poll to weigh in!
