How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.

Some books are so familiar that reading them is like being home again.

The Book Thief ~ RedesignedThe roller coaster of emotions I had to endure in this book left me speechless. As soon as I’m done reading it, I was so devastated and amazed and I just stared blankly into space for as long as I can remember, trying to sink everything in. I was really afraid to do a cover for it because the novel is so beautifully told that doing a simple cover might not give it justice. But I have loved it so much that designing this is [hopefully] worth the risk.Long story short, the book is phenomenal. Read it, if you still haven’t.
so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.
