So let's up the time to 30 minutes: The total number of words is 4200 when 140 words per minute is multiplied by 30 words per minute. 4200 words read divided by **200 words** each page is 21 pages (a bit more reasonable amount for an assignment and activity).

There are 219 words every minute. So if you read at a rate of 100 words per hour you will finish a page of text in just under nine hours.

A typical adult reader reads at a rate of 250-300 words per minute so a young adult would need to increase their reading speed by a factor of four to five to have a chance of finishing a book within a reasonable time.

However, there are some very fast readers who can read 450-500 words per minute so they could possibly finish a book in less than three hours. But since the average length of a novel is 120-150 pages long it would be difficult for them to cover enough text in that time.

So the simple answer is that even a young adult would need to increase their reading speed by a significant amount to be able to read at the rate of **a normal adult reader**.
