"Personally, I've tried all the above methods, and they're too exhausting for me. It takes a lot of focus and mental effort to speed read, and when you do it you're missing out on information. I like the fact that when I'm reading a book or article I can take a few moments to pause and think about an idea. With speed reading, these moments are gone. I might consume a ton of information, but I don't feel like I actually process it. That defeats the purpose of reading for me."

Exactly my feelings. I want to enjoy reading, I want to engulf myself in the story or article or information. Speed reading takes all this adventure away.
