    How many new books do you read in a year (approximately)?

    Do you have a to-read list or a wish list on amazon?

    Haven't read as many as in the past decade.  I used to read about one a month.  Mostly read self help and the Bible (daily) now.  About maybe three, but I miss a good book just to snuggle up with and read for the pure enjoyment.  No I don't have an Amazon list, but I think I'm going to start one.  Thanks for bringing this subject into focus.  I'm going to search for a good read for the winter.

    I can read about four a week if I have the time. For the most part, I average about 100 a year. I do have an Amazon wish list and I have about 300 books on my Kindle account waiting for me now. I download a lot of books that are offered for free.

    I believe it would average about 3 "good" books/year since I turned 17 for  the 3rd time. If you included the time before I was 17 for the 3rd time; I think my average would be significantly less. Perhaps we could round it up to one. Yes I am indeed a slow learner; it took a long time for me to see the light...

    I based my Goodreads Challenge 2012 on 42 books and have ended up reading 56 books so far. With three months left, it will end at 80 books...not to mention 100's of flash fiction and short stories I have read in magazines, ezines and blogs.
    I review some books as a part of a review site, so I end up reading more than one book in a week. With middle age catching up on me, speed reading days are long gone, a time when I could read a book a day. sad
    I have a wish list on Amazon and Goodreads, mostly books I will purchase later, and some I would love to but are too pricey for me.

    I read around 50 books that are new to me.  I also reread about a dozen old favorites a year.

    Typically, I read one a week. When in a reading mood, I usually read two a week. Yet when off school, I read three a week. Hmmm... Let me calculate. 80 books a year. And yes, I have to wish lists on amazon for books and other purchasing possibilities.

    I read around 2-3 books a week almost every week, no I don't have a to read list. I read what ever looks good at the time.

    I try to read, or sometimes re-read a particularly good book, as often as possible.  Seeing as I'm a college student taking 25 credit hours though, my homework reading load far outweighs my personal reading time.  So unfortunately I don't get through as many books as I would like.  However, I do read multiple books at once.  That probably doesn't make sense to a lot of people, but it works for me.  I have books in my home, and I have books on my kindle.  Since I have to carry so much back and forth from classes and what not, I only carry my kindle with me because it takes up less space.  However, when back at my apartment, I try to have a different reading book that I can read when I have the time.

    I love reading and I would guess I read anywhere from 30 to 60 new books every year. That, of course, doesn't include the dozens of old favorites I reread. smile

    I read about one book a month. However, I also spend a lot of time reading articles and blog posts on the Internet.
