Perhaps precision is the wrong term afterall. I am interested in this feature if it gives me a good estimate. I realize that I probably read fiction at one rate, theology at another, and other genres at still another. It is enough for me if the PW is accurate enough to notice the approximate it time it take me to get through a page/set of locations while taking into account the idiosyncrisies I bring into that particular genre, i.e. stopping for a few minutes to think through a concept with its implications, then predictively forecase that into an estimate time till completion within an acceptable range.
