How fast do you read?

Here's a little app that tells you how fast you read, along with a few basic questions about comprehension.  I got the following results:

I do read kind of slow, but I'm not uptight about it.  I sort of enjoy reading slowly.  Also, frankly, who gives an ef how fast anyone reads?   Although, at the same time, I have a feeling I will spend the rest of the day taking this test compulsively.

Now I got 635 wpm, but, last night after showing this to M, we realized this thing is total BS - along the continuam scale there, between "Average Collage Students" and "College Professors" is ... wait for it... "High-level executives." Nice try, Staples. Met any High-level executives lately? I have, and they don't read.
