    It can vary anywhere from 20 to 40 just depending.

    I would say about 50. One book every week or so.

    As many as I can get my hands on! There is not much English reading material available here so us readers are reliant on kindly tourists and their abandoned holiday reads :-)

    Between 30 and 50. Now that I have a toddler, I'm sure that number is going to skyrocket to 100-150.....do bed time stories count smile

    42 (it's funny how result of my calculations matched an answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything).

    Right now, I'm an english major at university so i read a lot. I have probably 20-25 books this semester alone, so I read a lot. For pleasure, I can usually read a good ten books over summer because I'm really burnt out after semesters of constant reading.

    For pleasure 20-30 a year,for school add another 10, not text books but additional books that are required reading.

    Since I am a writer and consultant, my profession requires me to read plenty of books. I read over 150 books a year. Of course, sometimes I don't finish all of them, sometimes I scheme through them. But I make sure I take notes from each book that I lay my hands on.

    What Is Qposted 7 years ago

    I've read a lot of books, loved to read books, and stopped the day I decided to write a book, myself.  I haven't even read a book in the past 8 years that wasn't required reading.  I hate that about myself.  Cheers to the people who still read and keep writers employed.
