    Probably about 52.  I tend to average one book a week.   It depends on how long it is though.  It took me about three weeks to read The Stand by Stephen King. When I was younger, I read a lot more and sometimes could read a 300 page book in a day.

    I used to read 3-4 books a week, now I'm lucky if I average one. But I also listen to ebooks when walking my dog (about an hour a day), so, with luck, I'll average two books a week. I find listening as I walk is a great way to catch up on classics.

    Growing up, prior to the internet, digital TV, recorded movies etc I would average 1 a day (medium sized paperback).

    Nowadays, with all my current distractions, I would be generous saying 5 a year. Although this would be something I am willing to change smile

      I have to confess that I read The Stand on my tablet (off-brand of an I Pad)  When I am not sure how many pages I am reading I tend to read faster)  I also like audio books

    I'm hoping 50 or so, averaging one a week. I kept count last year and was under my goal (42) but then many of them were textbooks, so I wasn't disappointed or anything.

    An intriguing question with an obtuse answer. The answer depends on what type of book, the word count etc. Non-fiction requires more effort. Authors like Tom Clancy tend to have high word counts. I also re-read books I've read before. Currently reading Dickens and this needs reading slowly to fully appreciate the prose.

    I would say around 20 or just over that.

    A couple of years down the line, I read 500 books (surprisingly) in an year. Now I find myself fortunate if I manage to read 100 books annually.

    I would say around 20, I would like to start reading more though.

    A number between 25 and 40. I actually have been keeping track of the number of books since I was 14 years old! I love seeing the number add up through the year. I get an accomplished feeling for it, just a sense of personal satisfaction.
