Trouble with keeping a high reading speed

I have been told that reading speed should be around twice as fast writing speed. Well I'm having issues, cause even though my writing is now up to 90wpm even on relatively new material, my reading speed on new material is a hanging at that at or below that mark, both with my own shorthand and that from a book.

I suspect the solution is to do speed drills in reading just as I do speed drills in writing. I have actually read a lot of shorthand, a lot from the 'Graded readings' and I read the whole of Alice in Wonderland. If theres anything thats holding me back from using shorthand more often -- and I already use it a lot, is the fact that reading it is quite slow.
