It completely blew my mind today when I saw a news report on Spritz, a new app that helps you read up to 1,000 words per minute (wpm).
Yeah, 1,000. You could read a full length novel pretty damn quick at that speed. In fact, The Hobbit (which is 95,356 words) would only take you around 70 minutes. Wow.
Curious? You know you are! Check out Spritz’s website, and try the technology for yourself. In about five minutes, I was up to 500 wpm.
I’m not sure I’d want to read a novel like this, but man, it’d make burning through dry essays or reports a whole lot easier.
