Approximately how many books do you read a year?

I probably only read about 1 a month so 12 books a year.

  • Probably 2 books per week now that I have no time- so a good estimate is 100 or so.

  • I read 2 or 3 books a week, so I guess that means 96 to 156 a year. I spend a lot of time in used book stores LOL.

  • Before my son came, I was able to read about three a month. But now I get maybe one completed a month. ( Usually I have three going at once. )

    Congrats to you and me...I heard only about 15% of the population reads for entertainment.

  • At least 20. I've read 8 just in the last 3 months because I got obsessed with Twilight like a loser, so thats 4 just right there.

  • Haha AriMic I'm so obsessed with the Twilight books. I'm actually really surprised I like them. I'm just not a fan of sci-fi at all, but the Twilight books are my one exception.

  • I read probably about 4 or 5 books a week. I read every night before bed and generally read more during the day then I would watch tv. I have about 350 books or so, but I get most of them used! lol

  • I am about the same, a book a month. But I get in slumps sometimes where I will go months without picking up a book. It's usually when I get stuck in the middle of a book that is not keeping my interest. I can't finish the book, but I feel guilty about putting it down to start a new book. Lame.
