More About Charlotte Bronte
Charlotte Bronte lived from 1816 to 1855. In 1824 she was sent away to school with her four sisters and they were treated so badly that their father brought them home to Haworth in Yorkshire. The elder two sisters died within a few days and Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne were brought up in the isolated village. They were often lonely and loved to walk on the moors. They were all great readers and soon began to write small pieces of verse and stories.
Once Charlotte's informal education was over she began to work as a governess and teacher in Yorkshire and Belgium so that she could add to the low family income and help to pay for her brother Branwell's art education. Charlotte was a rather nervous young woman and didn't like to be away from home for too long. The sisters began to write more seriously and published poetry in 1846 under male pen names - there was a lot of prejudice against women writers. The book was not a success and the sisters all moved on to write novels. Charlotte's best-known book, Jane Eyre, appeared in 1847 and was soon seen as a work of genius. Charlotte really knew how to make characters and situations come alive.
Charlotte's life was full of tragedy, never more so than when her brother Branwell and sisters Emily and Anne died within a few months in 1848/49. She married her father's curate in 1854 but died in 1855, before her fortieth birthday.
Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816 and died in 1855.

Great idea Mar 17, 2006
Heard about this book from a friend. I think it's a great idea what they have done. I'm a slow reader, since I subvocalise, but reading this book helps a lot, by getting me to continue reading, and get the bigger picture of the story.
A word from the creator Mar 7, 2006
I hope you enjoy this new reading technique. It is part of a reading revolution we are creating at readpal.com ... for faster, more efficient reading on-screen and in print.
If you are passionate about reading or have deadlines looming and need to get through the book very rapidly then the AutoSkim format is for you. The system is fabulous for revising / rereading but most find they can, after a little practice, read anything with this method.
Unnecessary words are removed. Your mind is powerful and subconsciously fills in the blanks. Thus for "The cat sat on the mat" AutoSkim has " cat sat mat". Up to 50% of the less important words are removed.
