LadyArwen: Was anyone else scared a bit by this one? Phew. I was! Very well done!!

LadyArwen: Movie trailers. Gotta love them. Keeps the excitement going as we wait. One might say it makes the waiting less arduous. What do you think?

How Long Does It Take to Read Popular Books?

Going by the average reading rate of most adults (300 words per minute), Personal Creations mocked up this infographic to put some of literature’s most popular works into perspective.

Via Electric Lit.

LadyArwen: Interesting. But definitely not accurate for me. Some books (like Da Vinci Code) read so much faster than others. And others I take time to digest and re-read certain passages, so they take longer. Thoughts?
