Reading At Speed

Everyone could use some improvement in the reading speed and comprehension that LiveInk promises. I tried the three reading samples to see if the technique worked for me. The text is laid out like poetry which is very interesting though not specially helpful for me. Seeing Chapter 1 from Moby Dick laid out thusly, I can barely focus on the story that is unfolding.

I guess for the tool and system to be useful you've got to catch them young so there is nothing to unlearn. The sport news didn't register at all and that had nothing to do with LiveInk - I am profoundly sports and sports news challenged. As for the technical journal - the layout did not help make it interesting only a little odd. I found myself focusing on form rather than content.
