    I kept up with it but I don't like it. I miss the flow of the words on the page (be it paper or electronic), the appreciation of good writing and the ability to put my intake on hold as I savoured a particularly beautiful collection of words.

    Child's play......

    It's more important to filter out important parts of a text.
    That's easiest in your mother tongue

    Would be good if it could start slower - 150 or 200.

    500wpm is still slow though? You can easily skip read many times faster.

    I do that and the speeds are 250-500 words per minute.

    If you want to read a language which you are not proficient in, 250 is quite a high starting speed,
