How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
I can dig it
Okay. This is great for research and collage textbooks and the like and rather fascinating in general, but when I’m reading for enjoyment, I like to sloooooooooooooooooooooooow it dooooooooooooooooooooooown! I like to Hear the words and Feel the emotions and See the world described. Essentially, I like to become immersed in the book and interact with the characters. Sometimes I reread passages several times, testing different inflections, vocal tones, and facial expressions, or just feeling that gut-wrenching heartache once more before moving on.
Bedelia Du Maurier in Sakizuki
To me this was Bedelia’s ep. She was totally the center of the episode. Her mysterious disappearance was only the cream of the crop. Now I’m so hooked on Anderson’s character. There are so many questions. Why can she disappear so easily? It seems she has no social ties whatsoever apart from Hannibal in her life. She’s all alone. She totally retrieved herself from any social relationships because of what has happened in her past. We know so little about her. She seems such a wealthy person. Okay, being a psychiatrist is not the worst job regarding payments, but can you get that rich? I don’t think so. Another thing that totally surprised me was of course the ending scene with Hannibal and the perfume. Why perfume? She could have left a letter, wine, a certain kind of flower, a book anything else symbolical, but she chose to leave a bottle of perfume for him? Where they lovers at some point in the past before the mysterious patient-thingy happened? Hannibal seems to enjoy their game. Usually, he is not careless, but still he lets her get away the first time she tells him that she knows he’s a dangerous man. He totally had the option to kill her right there in his office, but he chose not to do so. Did he like their game so much? Or does he just feel affection for Bedelia or loyalty? Or both? She could totally tell Jack what her fears regarding Hannibal are, but instead she abandons her own life and lets an innocent man rot in his cell in order to let Hannibal continue his life style! I’m so so intrigued by Bedelia’s character now I want to know more, I want her to survive, I want flashbacks of her’s and Hannibal’s shared past and I want it asap.
