    How many hours a day do you spend reading?

    This is for Dallas Matier, since it's not asked enough ^_^

    I probably will spend a good 3 hours reading simply for pleasure. School on the other hand, you best ask how many hours we spend not reading...well for those who take school seriously anyways. smile

      I love to read... but what school sometimes makes you read can be so tedious. Don't miss that part.

    Wow, I think 26 hours a day...LOL...I know there are only 24 hours in a day, however, reading is a huge part of my life.  Between my four children, I am either reading to them or reading the same book with them.  I am constantly researching information for Hubs that I am working on, or just researching information that I am curious about, as well as reading others Hubs.  So I am reading more often than not...lol

      You must be a wonderful role model for your children! Wow, 34 hubs in 4 weeks... that must take some serious researching time. Congratulations! ^_^

    More than 4 hours I think. In the daytime I read news and scan some websites. At night I read novels.

      That's wonderful,  nice variety. It's good you don't read the news before bed. It can be very depressing.

    lol... alright, alright...

    Maybe an hour or two a day, on average. Though, it really depends on what books I have available - and, it's usually a lot less than that if I have video games I want to play.

    That's books, at least. If I'm talking about time spent poking around aimlessly on the Internet, too, then it's more than that.

      lol, the internet requires a surprising amount of reading.  You could always play Oblivion or Skyrim and read within the game if you want to read more, hehe ^_^

    Hi Mama Kim 8, I probably spend anywhere from two to four hours a day reading during a work week. On the weekends I read four to six hours a day.

      That's a good chunk of reading ^_^ We're about the same, I average 4-5 on any given day. Although I have to admit part of it is kids book for my little ones ^_^

    It never occured me to actually make notes about how many hours per day I spend by reading. But I'm positive it will be a lot - varying between reading fanfics, various memes, or the amazing book I just got pointed to by my parents, by Ludvík Souček.

      I think people read more in a day than they realize. I've never read anything by Ludvik Soucek. I wonder if his work has been translated. Which book are you reading of his.

    I don't really read a lot, but if I get into a book, I won't stop. Examples are Clive Barker's The Hellbound Heart, or a better example, Mister B. Gone (so good I reviewed it). I also fell in love with Stephen King's (writing as Richard Bachman) Blaze, and I'm spending more time reading Gotrek and Felix: The Anthology than anything at the moment.

    It's hard to tell how many hours I spend reading. Perhaps an hour or two each night, but only if you count looking at Warhammer lore on Wikipedia as "reading" ^^

      I know how that goes... I tend to finish books within 1-2 days for that reason. I've never read any of the books you mentioned and I've read most of Stephen King. I'll have to check them out ^_^

    Usually, reading is my first activity of the day, and I'd say that I read about two hours on an average.  I read more than that today, but I was doing specific research.
