Fifteen short stories you can tell in less than 15 Minuten.
We revolutionised publishers when we brought the machine to market and the numbers of copies reached a new level. We have a number of new fast read systems that promise that their new way of presenting text will minimize the amount of text review work and the amount of work required.
However, the new ways are often not the best (R.I.P. Google Wave; good fortune, Neil Young), and many folks rather enjoy their own time. Enterprises like Spritz remove the light imperfections of ocular motion - radiant words directly on your eyes á la Clockwork Orange - and enable you to reach a biologic 600 watts per minute in a (twisted) eyelash.
Wouldn't syringes be a good idea for stacking booklets on your desktop? Isn' t fast scanning ideal for those who don't have a second?

People who find the act of fast readering daunting; for example, 23% of Americans did not actually study a literary work in the past year. However, there are other ways to make it simpler to deal with books that do not require the alphabetization equivalents of that.
There is Rooster, a brandnew start-up that is curating two novels (a classical, a contemporary) every months and delivering them in easily readable 15-minute instalments for a low paid membership-rate. Oyster gives you 200,000 copies for less than $10 per months for those who want more.
There is also a weekly issue of recommended looking readings, the journal I started with Halimah Marcus that is free for Tumblr, Kindle and ours. If you' re looking for a quick reader that's still good for some quality study, here are 15 eclectical and superb stories that you can tell in less than 15 min at an avarage rate of 300ppm.
But what if they didn't work or didn't work at all most of the while? This man is virtually a short version of a super hero.
