Free online speed reading program

If you're like me, the arduous process of slogging through a massive tome is becoming more and more intimidating. This is, after all, the Information Age, and we're used to having pretty much everything reduced down to a few lines in a blog post, a two-minute YouTube clip, or a 140-character-or-less tweet. Anything beyond that...well, there just isn't enough time between Facebook status updates.

Eyercize is a free, online speed reading program that's designed to help you become a more accomplished reader. It's designed to help you:
  • ease your workload
  • reduce eyestrain
  • improve your job skills
  • get better grades
  • improve your material retention
  • The program allows you to adjust your reading speed from 100wpm up to 5,000. There are other helpful features, including a bookmarklet you can copy to your browser toolbar which, when clicked, takes text you have highlighted on a web page and pulls it into the speed reading trainer.

    And did I mention that it's free?

    This reminds me of Spreeder. It looks similar to this online tool
