Fortunately for my ego, I've already been disabused of my speed-reading delusions by my wife, who thinks that Jane Eyre is a nice afternoon's diversion. And she's nothing to one of her professors who won't watch the Sense and Sensability screenplay because she can read it faster than the show runs.
I read Battlefield Earth and boy did I hate it. It was too long, too droning and could have ended in a number of different place. It was like a short story dragged out to be a tomb. It's just well, awful tripe and if anyone is concidering reading it, save yourself and run away.
