Improving Your Reading Rate
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     What slows you down when you read? Do you daydream? Do find that you're reading the same words over and over? Perhaps you are still reading word by word. No matter what the problem is, reading seems like a chore. But it doesn't have to. Read on for some advice on these and other reading problems.
 
2     First of all, how is your vision? Poor vision is a common reason for reading problems. If the words are blurry or the lines of print seem wavy, you should have your eyes examined by a doctor. Of course it's hard to read if you can't see the words properly!
 
3     Do your eyes burn or water when you read? These are common symptoms of eye strain. Make sure you have the proper lighting. Rest your eyes periodically as you read. You may even want to get up and walk around for a minute or two. Make sure your glasses are clean. Hold your book upright at a proper distance. To find this distance, put a fist on your chin and hold your folded arm out from your face. Your book should be no closer or farther than your elbow.
