    I recommend the W3 Total Cache plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/
    You can use it to generate static HTML pages of any part of your site, which can then be served to your users, thus dramatically decreasing load time.
    You can also use it to minify your HTML, CSS and JavaScript, or to cache database requests.
    If your site has enough users to warrant using a CDN, this plugin will help you with that, too.
    And the best part ... it's free!

    Apart from that jQuery Image Lazy Load WP, might be worth a look: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...-lazy-loading/
    This ensures that images on your site aren't loaded till the user needs them.

    Hope that helps.

    I would also suggest (although this isn't really directly related to WordPress) installing the YSlow FireBug add-on (Firefox-only) and letting it analyze your site and tell you what to do to speed it up.

    Also, if your theme / blog posts make heavy use of images, consider optimizing them (without quality loss) through a service such as Yahoo! SmushIt.
