I got the book 10 days to faster reading (http://www.amazon.com/Days-Faster-Reading-Abby-Marks-Beale/dp/0446676675) and that has been really great to work through. My reading speed has at least doubled, but comprehension is a bit down – hopefully that comes back with practice. Two things I have noticed though: You need to keep it up, it’s easy to slip back into old reading habits, you are basically retraining how you read. Also, it’s helped my reading aloud, we instead of speaking the word as I read it, I now read a few words in front so know better where to put emphasis / have time to deal with unusual words.
