  • LOL in the summer? None. I am lucky if I can go to the bathroom alone. When they are in school I try and read a book a week. I like different books but mostly fiction.

  • I average about 3 a week sometimes more especially if I am re-reading a book from my collection. I am in a book exchange club where we send 5-10 books to other people a month and also get 5-10 books to help keep our costs down. I will read just about anything but LOVE Iris Johansen. We have a fully stocked library in our house and bothof our children (6 months and 2 1/2) have fully stocked bookcases in their rooms. Our 6 month old looks at the waterproof books that only have like 6 pages and our 2 year old loves reading anything.

  • I read one book a month. I am in a Book Club and we're in our 14th year. I cannot read other books at the same time because I get confused and forget what the Book of the Month is about. We meet once a month to discuss and rate the books we read. As far as my children, they are grown so I don't know if, what, and how often they read. When they were younger, my boys especially were avid readers.

  • a month.. yikes.. uhh... 15-20 depending on how long I've wanted to get my hands on this new book or if i am rereading and old one. I will read whatever sounds good at the moment, could be murder mystery (sue grafton), humor (janet evanovich.. love her), paranormal romance (laurell K hamilton), or whatever sounds good from the store.

    The kids have several books they "read" but at 5 and 2 I am trying my hardest to let them learn with their peers in school and not show up as the smarty pants just to be bored all day at school.. IT'S NOT EASY!!

  • In the summer and the worst of winter, 10-15. In the spring and fall, 1 or 2.

  • depends. My books can be really long, 600pgs+, and I've got 3 kids so I dont really have much time to read and I like to make them last so I'd say 1-2 a month.
