How Fast Can You Read War and Peace?

This is another of the ridiculous challenges from UsvsTh3m. I used to be a pretty fast reader before my eyesight began to fail, but as I interpreted the question (correctly) as “How fast can you flip through the pages of War and Peace?” There are 1486 pages.

That was pretty fast, considering I stopped to take screenshots along the way. But the exercise added years to the age of my keyboard. If I were to attempt to actually read all those pages, my guess is that it would take me about 15 years.

There was a joke back when the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading Course was popular. Comedians would say they took the course and afterward were able to read "War and Peace" in 30 minutes. "It's a great book. It's all about Russia."
