  1. Thanks for sharing these tips. For several years I am still struggling to come over with subvocalization. This is still fine on my work-related emails but I can not avoid it on books or fiction text.

    Will try the suggestion in comments from Mark – however chewing gum while reading books may give me a headache. Will try it out anyways.

    • Maybe you could try his suggestion of humming instead of chewing gum. Good luck on your improving this skill.

  2. I have gone through similar stages to improve my skills but also to get rid of some of the habits. Particularly subvocalization was tricky. I found chewing a gum or humming a melody to be helpful here in order to reduce it. What about you? What is your fave?

    Furthermore, learning to read chunk of words took me some time. I found Ron Cole’s book ‘SuperReader’ a good mentor here and he also offers some free pen and paper material to practice. This is another hopefully helpful resource for further inspiration. https://www.speedreadinglounge.com/how-to-speed-read

    • Thanks so much, Mark, for sharing your experience and especially your resources. I really appreciate you sharing your expertise. 🙂
