    Hello. Bye

    Since we do a lot of writing and reading on Mibba, I thought this thread would be a fun way to see just how fast each of us can type and read. The average typing speed is 23 - 40 WPM, while the average reading speed is 250 - 300 WPM. The fastest typing speed ever, 216 words per minute, was achieved by Stella Pajunas-Garnand from Chicago in 1946.

    To see how many WPM you can type, go here.

    Post your results below. Wow
