What is the maximum number of book page in a day that you have ever read? I read 250 pages in a day. The book was Thus Spoke Zarathustra which belongs to Nietzche. What about you? Have you ever lost yourself while reading a book?

@yukselsarac, Just practice. Get a book you’re kinda interested in, and start skimming. Shut that voice in your head up, let the information go directly to your subconcious, so your concious mind doesn’t slow you down.

Then you can see how good you are at remembering the stuff that you have “absorbed”. Also, skim through it a few times, its better to go a few times fast then once slow.

@xyver, I think there have to be patience to achieve that, too. Thanks for your suggestions, I’ll try to do it. It comes to me reasonable that skimming a few times is better than once slow.

I once read the whole Harry Potter 5 in one day, so like 1300 pages, idk. But I often read books with around 500 pages in one day, because i just fall into them and forget everything else. :)

I don’t know. At 12, I read “Catcher in the Rye” in one day. These days, I read about one book a week, sometimes two, so I read over 50 books a year.

That would probably be 760, roughly (Harry Potter Ootp)
I’ve read a few books in a day before, but couldn’t give you a page count.

How does this relate to living a higher existence?

I tend not to read fast, I Read untill I understand the concept the writer is conveying, then I stop reading untill I have evaluated and synthesised this idea with what I already know or whatever creative thoughts it has inspired. When we read we learn from ourselves, words are meaningless untill interpreted. Taking the time to read should always be a accompanied by taking the time to scrutinise, evaluate and develop the ideas being learnt, otherwise you risk unconsciously accepting fallacious concepts!
