One of the youth activities at church when I was a teen was having a man from the congregation teach us how to speed read. I was never very good at it but the idea has always intrigued me. I once read Charley by Jack Weyland twice in a day so I could time myself the second time to figure out how many pages I could read in an hour. I think it was about 100, but it's been a long time.
