How long does it take you to read a 500 page paperback book?
A good one about 3-4 days...
My book is 396 and it takes most people about a week to read...
When I pick up a good book I read it until I am finished. Sometimes I am up till three or four am. I have been known to read a 500+ book in a day. I know, this is crazy but I love to read and am a fast one as well.
It depends on the book - I've read books that long in one, self-punishing sitting because they were too good to put down. Right now, I'm struggling to read another book for a 'book group' I'm in that just isn't doing it for me. I've been on page 27 for about four weeks (meanwhile, I read three other books).
One day. Four or five hours. No breaks. It's not that difficult. But if I have a class or work, then it will take me two or three days to find the time to read it.
I enjoy reading books and get through them quite fast. If it is a good book then i stay up until early hours reading it, but if the book is a slow starter or not very interesting then it could take me weeks to finish.
A couple days at best if its good if its not good by the first three pages it will never get read
A well-written book of that length will take me about two weeks to read. A book in vernacular prose with lots of slang and contractions and no depth will take less time.
If the book is really good, I can finish it in 5 - 6 hours, with bathroom breaks only. I read the 4th Harry Potter book (which is the thickest I think) in about 6 hours and I remember it has more than 500 pages in it.
Depends on the book. If it is interesting, a couple of hours. If it isn't, I may never finish it......
