As I was updating my Books Read in 2009 page, I had a little thought enter my mind. How many books do you guys read on average per year, month, or week? I know there are people at both extremes, so where do you stand?

I’ve read 29 books this year, and last year I believe I read 164. But I’m not positive and really too lazy to go check 😉

So I’m guessing I’m not really on track to meet last years amount, except for that you have to count in summer where the reading amount is pretty much doubled.

I think school makes life difficult, by the way. It means that bookish people with limited time can only read school books, and not the books they want to read. In most cases.

Anyways, sound off please. I’d really like to know what you all think.

    Well, I’ve read 35 books this year so far, but there’s been a week or two here and there this year where I haven’t read at all.

    And the busy thing-YES! That really restrains the reading process. Oh, and the money and library limitations of choice! 😛

    I’ve read sixty books this year so far. I’m averaging about fourteen or fifteen a month, I guess. That’s more than I read last year, I think.

    I’ve read about 55 books so far this year. Last year, I read over 200. I very highly doubt I’ll be doing that again this year. 😉 Methinks I average around fifteen books per month in general. But I might have a month where I read like ten. And then I’ll have a month where I read over 20. 🙂

    I’ve read about 20-ish books this year…and that’s the count from my Goodreads list + the ones that aren’t on there and I can remember off the top of my head. I’m sure there’s more, though. School makes it hard for me to read a lot.

    Per month, I read about four or five…per week, about one.

    I average ten a month…used to be more, but not lately.

    According to my Goodreads I’ve only read 19 books this year. However, I know I’ve read more but I can’t remember which ones. School most definitely stunts my reading. It’s quite annoying.

    I’m reading about 12-15 books every month. It seems like the more busy I am, the more books I read. 🙂

    You guys are great. I had to ask bookish people this question because really, unbookish people just don’t get it 😉

    I read something like eighty books last year, but that was kind of low for me because school was so hectic. So far this year I’ve been reading about 10 books a month.
