Has your reading speed increased over the years? Has your comprehension suffered at the expense of your reading speed?
I'm 22 and starting university this semester at a decent school; I'm also majoring in English and I'm worried at how slowly I read. Just to give an example, I read about 9 nine pages of Dracula in about an hour (although I checked my phone, texted a few people, and did other things during the hour; it isn't a very accurate measure of my speed, but it is the most recent).
I've looked into ways of improving my speed but they all seem to encourage skimming, which I don't want to do. I want to maintain good comprehension and get as much as possible out of what I read.
