Abstract The quantified-self movement has brought us a multitude of tracking devices mostly focused on physical activities. But healthy user habits go beyond the physical realm, such as cognitive activities, learning and reading. For installing healthy reading habits we built a wordometer using smart eyewear for tracking online and offline reading activities throughout the day. Besides providing reading statistics at the end of the day we propose a number of real-time interventions to support reading in-situ: adjustable text that takes into account users' current cognitive state, such as attention span, visual fatigue and comprehension levels. In this paper we report insights from our in-the-wild reading tracker and explore various intervention techniques with the goal of supporting user attention, focus, and comprehension in reading tasks.
