You Could Soon Read An Entire Harry Potter Book In Under 90 Minutes With This App [huffingtonpost.com]
Soon you could read all 309 pages of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in under 77 minutes. Yes, you.
To get through it that quickly (a pace of 1,000 words a minute) you’ll have to use an about-to-be released app and forgo the idea of reading page by page.
With Spritz, which is coming to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Gear 2 watch, words appear one at a time in rapid succession. This allows you to read at speeds of between 250 and 1,000 words per minute. The typical college-level reader reads at a pace of between 200 and 400 a minute.
