I’m posting this (by request) for Bridget and Kelvin.
readfa.st is a website that trains you to read faster. It does so by only revealing a couple of words at a time (which disappear again shortly after as the next words are revealed), forcing you to read at some speed that you set. It keeps track of your reading speed and helps motivate you to read faster over time.
It doesn’t give only random readings though–the neat thing about readfa.st is that you can upload PDFs to have it train you on. You can also use the bookmarklet to have it train you on websites, news articles, blog posts, etc. Some people may even find it useful for getting through reading material for school or work!
Let me know what you think
