How fast do you read?

I just got this link to the Staples’ reading test from Mrs Miniver’s Daughter. I think of myself as quite a slow reader but this was my score: You read 843 words per minute.
That makes you 237% faster than the national average.

Cheating, because the first time I did the test, I forgot to note my score. The second passage I got was one I knew anyway. So I’m taking this with a pinch of salt. Have a go? Just click on the red rectangle below.
