I would agree with most...reading speed depends on how easy the book is to comprehend. I read mostly non-fiction: philosophy, theology, psychology oriented stuff with an occasional novel thrown in there to give my brain a break. The non-fiction tends to go slower and sometimes I will purposefully limit myself to one chapter per sitting to allow for processing. With a novel, providing it is well-written and engaging, the pace is much faster. I have read some poorly-written novels though and they have been madness to get through. I rarely quit a book (though it does happen if it is bad enough) so usually I'll suffer through it even though it is quite painful. Those take me FOREVER to read...
