I think I had test anxiety...
and my eyes are tired and full of pollen...
and I'm in the same room as a distracting 4 year old...
and I have undiagnosed adult onset ADD.
The good news is that, if I could sustain this reading speed, I could read:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy in 28 hours and 37 minutes
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling in 3 hours and 45 minutes
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien in 23 hours and 19 minutes
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller in 8 hours and 30 minutes
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell in 4 hours and 20 minutes
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand in 15 hours and 11 minutes
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck in 8 hours and 16 minutes
Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper in 7 hours and 5 minutes
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens in 6 hours and 36 minutes
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain in 5 hours and 20 minutes
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte in 5 hours and 16 minutes
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee in 4 hours and 50 minutes
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger in 3 hours and 35 minutes
The Color Purple by Alice Walker in 3 hours and 15 minutes

The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells in 2 hours and 57 minutes
The Bible in 37 hours and 54 minutes
I guess that's good news. I've read many of these books and I'm pretty sure it took me a LOT longer. A whole lot longer.

Read normal (no cheating!).
Leave me a comment telling me how you did.
I bet you read faster than me, but you can't love reading any more than I do (even if I am a slow poke).
