National Geographic asks, What are some of the benefits to reading a book faster than usual?
We’ve got the answers, and the results of our survey.
Our answer: It’s a lot of fun.
The research, conducted by the National Spreeder Speed Reading Project, found that reading books faster than normal is good for your brain and good for you.
It boosts your focus, and it helps you become more productive.
(If you’re interested in learning more about reading, the Spreener’s book is an excellent place to start.)
Here’s why: Your brain is able to process new information more efficiently and speedily.
When you read a book that’s a long way from your current reading pace, your brain starts to slow down and the brain starts learning to process information differently.
That makes it easier to remember information, which means you can actually learn more.
Your brain gets better at processing new information faster.
In a survey of more than 10,000 people, we found that the average American spends more than 20 minutes a day doing work that requires brain power.
(That means it’s possible to spend more than half your waking hours doing something you don’t want to do.)
As you read more books, your reading speed increases.
For example, the average reader spends more time per hour reading the same book twice a day than the average non-reader.
You can get even more benefits by skipping a few hours per day.
A study by researchers at Harvard and University of Maryland found that people who skip three or more hours per week of reading actually perform worse on tests of cognitive abilities, such as verbal fluency, than people who read more.
(The same study found that those who read less often were better at maintaining their focus.)
But skipping less isn’t enough to get you to read more; you still need to read at a speed that is fast enough to keep your mind on the task at hand.
Your speed also matters to your health.
Studies show that a reading speed that’s too fast can increase your risk of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers.
And while the benefits are clear for people who can read faster, the downside can be just as serious.
Reading faster can cause you to lose focus.
When your brain is already focused on reading, it can’t concentrate on the tasks ahead, and you can’t focus on the things that matter most to you.
That’s because reading too fast has the potential to disrupt your natural ability to focus on a task, so your brain becomes distracted and doesn’t remember the information that’s coming in.
This can make it difficult to keep up with the information in your mind, which can make you feel more confused, anxious, and distracted.
It can also make you more likely to skip a task and/or read a shorter book.
This is especially true if you read longer books than usual, because you need to spend less time on a given task.
This makes it harder to keep track of your progress and makes it more difficult to track your progress across multiple tasks.
A faster reading pace also puts a strain on your body.
As a result, you’ll be more likely than usual to have certain physical problems, such with joints and muscles.
These physical problems are caused by an imbalance between your blood pressure and your oxygen supply.
So when you’re reading a longer book, your body is more likely not only to burn fat, but also to produce more body fat, which in turn makes you feel fat.
Your body also uses a lot more energy when you read at slower speeds.
It uses more energy to move through your body when you slow down.
If you read books at a slower pace, you’re less likely to burn calories, which increases your risk for diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
And if you get diabetes, your risk increases even more.
