“Worthying” ‘Speed-Reading’

When beginning to practice speed-reading
the first micro-skill one needs to use is
“Counting one’s present reading-speed”.

The possibly “up-front” guidance for this is
“Choose a
‘good and future-helpful
non-fiction book

for such practicing”.

This editing-publisher
although firstly scoring 125 words per minute
attributes some of this
current-reading-habit speed
to using both an eraser-ended pencil and a four-coloured pen
to quickly margin-mark
significant words
even at the first
“fast-glimpsing skip-through”.
