How much do you read?

Okay, there are actually two questions: how many books do you read in a month, and how often do you read (on average) on a daily basis?

I've just started reading more books, and I average about 2-3 a month, with about 30 minutes per day spent for reading. But then again, this is not set in stone. Sometimes I read a book in two days, reading all day long. Other times the reading stretches over a period of even two weeks. Heck, I have books I've begun reading and never finished, because I didn't like the style or whatever.

What about you?

    I read from 4-6 books a week and have for many years. I started reading books at age 3 and just kept going....

    I average 2 or 3 books a week. But with ghostwriting everyone else's books it does get harder to find time to read just for fun.

    How many i read varies based on the length of the books... but i read daily. Print books i tend to read about 30 minutes a day of improvement or learning materials, and anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour of stories just to help my mind take a break.

    And then of course theres the time i spend reading books to my kids at bedtime too...

    How the hell are you few managing several books a week? I'm lucky if I can get a book read in a week.

    Maybe a better question would be: how long do you read for in an average day?

      This is a tricky question. It really depends what I had for lunch...

    Not as much as I would like to. Usually don't have time for books but always up for reading articles online. I've done years of research on how to get page 1 on google but am still trying to figure it out. Any suggestions?

      I'm a fast reader for one thing - and I read every night for at least 2 hours and usually more. Occasionally I get caught up in a story and read all night - and then feel like crap the next day:p

    I try to read a book a week. It is a challenge at times but I do enjoy reading and the distraction it gives me. I'm reading Lord Of The Rings this week!

    People forget that reading stuff on the internet counts! How many websites / newssites do you read every day now?

    I know that I read a lot...and I mean a lot. Being a marketer/copywriter, that makes sense, but I have always enjoyed reading.

    The simple answer would be not enough. Would like to read more when I have the time.

      I read a book once every 3-4 weeks.

      Like movies, many will be slung unless there's quality in the initial parts. I'm growing more hard to please as I'm getting older.

      I slung Rich Dad, Poor Dad for it's apparent lies recently and went onto read The Teachings of Don Juan and ridded of that for the same reason. Both remain half unread.

      Maybe some Huxley or some NLP based material next. Here's hoping for quality!
