It Came From the Internet

By Connor Bradshaw Van Lier Ribbink ’13

Zap Reader

Ever found yourself in utter shock and fear at break when your buddy reminds you that an article must be read for your Gospel’s in Action class next period and you have no idea what to do?

Zap Reader is your solution.

Zap Reader is a solution to reading large masses of text in record time.

Simply visit and click “reader,” then copy the words from your source and paste your text into the box and click “Zap It!”

Next you have to select the words per minute you will be reading.

I suggest around 800 words a minute if you’re crunched for time.

A setting around 300 words per minute is a much more managable pace.

When you are ready to go, brace yourself and hit play. Words will flash one at a time at a record pace and knowledge will be chucked into your brain with tremendous force.

Now the trick is to actually remember what you just read. Practice makes perfect, and once you get the hang of this hit Internet phenomenon you’ll rely on it whenever you realize you didn’t read that one article you thought wouldn’t ever matter.

It will be a student’s best friend and your source of reading anything lighting speed.
