Would I do better on the ACT?

I've taken the SAT twice and my highest scores are 700CR/760M/790W. Math and writing are fine, but my reading score was a 660, then a 700. I've always done well in English classes, but I'm wondering if the style of questions on the ACT would be better for me. I'm assuming that the math and writing sections wouldn't be too different, but I've read that generally ACT questions are more direct. What do you guys think?

    I'm not sure if I'd bother since your scores are great! But if you feel the urge, download the free ACT from the ACT website and take it as a full, timed test. If you really prefer it and score well, you can take the real thing. If it's comparable to your SAT, just leave it alone.
