Reading is a joy, and shouldn't be hurried. There is no pleasure in speed reading, each word should be cherished and savoured.

You read 314 words per minute.
That makes you 26% faster than the national average.

Felt a bit slow, the text was full of "not common" words.

That it was in english din't help much :) Is there a Dutch version somewhere?

I'm a slooooooow reader. I usually have to go back and reread something b/c my mind wanders a bit. Also depends on the material as well. *shrugs*
