I want to read more, and faster... I am wondering some of you out there I know read a book a week easily or even a book a day if your superfast. I want to know what tips you would be so kind to reveal to me in order that I may be able to start reading more, be motivated to read more, comprehend more, stay focused on what I'm reading... but all this I want to do and do it quicker to. Also is it really possible to speed read at rates they say that exceed even 1000 wpm without being Kim Peek?? What is realistic and what isn't and what advice can you give me to read, read quickly, and enjoy it... as well as any advice on the rest of what I talked about above? Please help me, and thank you... God bless.

First off, are you referring to non-fiction or textbook reading and comprehension or 'imaginative' writing, like literary novels, epics, plays, poetry, etc. You can train yourself to read faster in the former category. With the latter, it is a matter of just reading quality books until your brain can appreciate complex syntax, vocabulary, innovation, originality, etc.
