The subscription service Oyster Books has a solution for getting through your mounting to-read stack: Spritz. According to Publishers Weekly, Oyster is teaming up with the speed-reading technology company to help readers literally cut down on the amount of reading they have to do.
Here’s how it works: “Spritz reformats reading material, creating a one-word stream that can be adjusted by speed, eliminating the traditional practice of scanning back and forth across a page of text.”
Alas, more pressure to choose every word with care, and new meaning to the phrase “use your words.”
Oyster is offering Stephen Covey’s self-help bestseller, The 7 Habits of High Effective People, free in the Spritz format.
