Day 319 – Speedreading; It’s finally happening

I’ve spent a great deal of time using speedreading mechanics to help me pay attention. One of these is the simple tactic of using a finger or pen to “trace” your vision across the page, to keep the eyes from wandering around and re-reading words.

Another one (which utilizes the first principle) is stopping your vision a few words before the end of the line and reading the words with your peripheral vision.

I’ve been slamming through educational textbooks, and I have NEVER read so fast, with full comprehension, in my life.
