The BookShout mission is to help you read more. We want you to be as excited about books as we are, and we’re continuously striving to improve our platform and apps to change the future of reading. Launching the integration of Spritz speed reading technology within the BookShout app was just the beginning of our never-ending pursuit of enhancing user experience.
Our latest release is one we’re particularly proud of, so I wanted to give you some tips and tricks. Effective use of the speed reader will have you reading more than you ever have. Whenever I open up the speed reader, I feel a bit like the 80’s robot Johnny 5. I’m digesting information at lightning speeds—crushing my daily reading goal— and the moment I finish a book I still feel the need for “MORE INPUT!”
The Basics: Opening Your eBook, Transitioning to the Speed Reader & Adjusting Speed Reading, and Daily Goals
Inside the Book: Pause, Jump Between Sentences & Paragraphs
Reading Tools: Defining a Word, Leaving Bookmarks, Notes, and Highlights, and Social Sharing
Use the speed reader throughout your day. Yes, you may sacrifice some Instagram time to hit your reading goal, but you’ll easily be consuming more books. Fire up the speed reading mode while on the treadmill at the gym, knock out a chapter while on an Uber ride, or devour a couple thousand words while you’re taking a break at work.
