Fargo, ND – A young speed reader who challenged himself to read every book in the Fargo Public Library just announced that he has accomplished his goal.
Sopan Talleen is his name and reading a lot of books is his game.
Sopan is a twelve year old Mensa student who was discovered to be a natural speed reader at a very young age.
His parents recall that at the ripe age of four, Sopan precociously read the entire Hobbit and Lord of the Rings four-book box set in one week and with amazing comprehension.
Without ever taking any speed reading instruction, young Sopan reads an estimated 30,000 words per minute.
Now all young Sopan Talleen says he needs to do is simply “read all the new books that regularly enter the library which should keep me totally up-to-date on all the latest information that I need to know”.
