I've always been slow, and I often wonder if those speed readers around me are having the same reading experience that I am. I know, for example, that not everyone "hears" a voice reading along with them the way I do. Some people read with their eyes and only have to "see" the word. (I've done this on occasion, but it's difficult. I tend not to trust what I've read until I internalize it.) I've also heard that some people can read multiple areas of a page at once.
Ignoring accuracy (because that's a whole other topic), do you think the different ways people read result in dramatic differences in their reading experience?
If you're a writer, do you think what you write is more successful for one type of reader versus another?
