Stop Speed Reading

Iain Broome wants you to stop speed reading:

I want you to stop speed reading. I want you to not worry about how many books you’ve read and focus on the one that you’re reading right now. Speed reading is for panicking students and literary agents. It’s not for you and I.

I admit to buying a speed reading book a while ago, but I never really got into it. Now that I’m out of school, reading as fast as possible no longer has any appeal. I’d rather take the time to enjoy a book and really absorb what the author has to say than blow through it just so I can check it off my reading list.
