Read Timothy Ferris’ book “4 hour workweek.” He gives fantastic speed reading tips.

I read inside out. I’ve set a few records amongst people at my school, etc.
I read the white space, and not the black.
When i was younger and they were teaching me letters in school they taught me by giving me this incised letter thing so I could feel the letters. I realized in sixth or seventh grade that I had been doing it inside out. XD
But it makes it so that I can read huge chunks of text at a glance.

First link has a free course that may be enough to get you to a speed where reading becomes more enjoyable. If you benefit then you can decide on going further. Their courses are $15 – $25.

I’d do the free course first. Then decide after that if you want to go further.
