    It's not your fault Si, but I've seen that on about eight sites and in a few papers/magazines.

    I'm quite bored of it.

    I've improved my reading speed dramatically, by different techniques.One technique called skittering is where you just read the first and last line of a paragraph and then just scan the words inbetween.You don't consciously say the words out loud, you just make sure that you have swooped over them.You'd be surprised that you easily get a jist of what's going on.This is attributed to your brain sorting the words out for you, because it has an idea what the jumbled up words mean because of you consciously reading the first and last paragraph.

    Also, when you read, concentate more on the upper part of the word, read the tips of the words, your brain will easily follow and you'll read twice as fast instantly.

    Thanks! :study
