For lack of a better way to describe it, I don't read line by line. I read two pages at a time.
It's actually pretty easy to do. You start by reading whole paragraphs, look at it, fix it in your mind, and let your brain churn on it while your eyes are looking at the next paragraph.
Eventually, you'll be able to hold both pages in your mind at once.
The theory is that your brain can process the data faster if you don't focus on it. Let your "subconscious" do the actually reading, so all you get is a movie.
Bear in mind though, that there is a trade off between speed and comprehension. I can read a novel much faster than a technical text, because the sentences tend to be shorter and less complicated, and the subject matter is much less dense.
