How many books do you usually read per month? I thought that I've been reading a lot lately -- I've been reading about 5-6 books a month, but, from some of the things I've read on this forum, it seems like a lot of you read a lot more than that. I think maybe it's because I read much slower than most frequent readers -- so to speak. It takes me about 20-ish hours to read a novel (I'd guess on average). One of my friends says she can get through a novel in about eight hours so I guess that's how some people are reading more than ten a month. The only novel I can remember reading in that amount of time is Catcher in the Rye and that's because it's relatively short and an easy read. How are you guys reading so much? Are you just way faster readers? Or are you somehow finding time to read 5+ hours a day? Or is 5-6 a month a decent pace?
