Speed reader?

In today's Guardian there's a piece on how much Jeffrey Archer has read while in jail. They seem to think that 16 long works in 67 days is a goodly amount of reading - though I think they may well not have met fen.

According to my calculations Archer is reading around 0.24 of a novel a day. Looking at the review section of this blog I seem to be reading at a rate of around 0.37 npd - and I know I'm not the fastest fannish reader about. I'd actually guess his reading speed as being fairly average amongst the people I know.

I'd have expected better of a literate newspaper.
