My slow reading drives me crazy.
Take an Evelyn Wood reading course. http://www.ewrd.com/ewrd/index.asp, or search for an e-book on speed-reading.

Speed-reading is a skill that is easily practiced, and it works very well. I used a book years ago, practiced for a few weeks, and got my rate up to 1100 wpm on newspaper material with excellent comprehension.

It's a skill that serves one particularly well in higher education - should be mandatory for students, IMHO.
