286wpm with 91% comprehension but the one I got wrong was the one I was planning to press correctly (I hate smart phones).

I'm not the sort of guy to speed read, many times I end up analsying deeply the text and if there are words I'm buggered with I get a dictionary on hand. For example scripture isn't the sort of thing one would speed read unless its those darn family trees in the OT, and even for pleasure I'm usually reading educational texts (when not reading crime thrillers) so I also am doing side research to gather further context when something particularly interests me.

So I'd probably have like 7wpm in those cases.

Fun fact: I tried to read the Bible from cover to cover once at age ten. When I got to the begats, I thought that it was important information. After several attempts to memorize them, I gave up on reading the Bible completely.
