Speed reading courses?
#1
Does anyone know of a reasonably priced (under $100) and effective (as in, actually work) speed reading book, course, or seminar that I could take?

I read around 320 WPM comfortably, but I'd like to read much faster - around 1000 with practice.

Commenting as a reminder to follow along. I'm good at retention of what I read, generally, but am pretty average in speed. Hope you get some good suggestions!

I'd suggest an app. https://www.spreeder.com let's you read the things you are already reading instead of forcing you to read silly passages you have no interest in like some other options.
