“I took a speed-reading course where you run your finger down the middle of the page and was able to read War and Peace in 20 minutes. It’s about Russia,” once quipped Woody Allen. The Allen quote says much better than I ever could about why I’ve never taken a speed-reading course, despite my frustration over never reading all the books I want.  


But now social media and tech blogs have been ablaze with hype about a new speed-reading app called Spritz, that claims to be able to increase users’ reading speed to as much as 1,000 words a minute — that’s more than three times the average adult reading speed of 300 words a minute.


So just like Woody, I might also finally be able to read Tolstoy’s masterpiece in a day. Alternatively, I could save myself even more time by just reading the shortened version of War and Peace by Sarah Pallin’s favourite author, Cliff Notes.
