It’s time for another “Wednesday Wonderings” question!
With all the book reviews and North & South discussion posts going on lately, I think it’s time for a small “break” with this meme. My question today is about books, though (can you believe it?).
THE question: How long does it take you to read a book?
I think there are two types of people in the world: those that read crazy fast (1+ books in 1 day) and those that read at a normal (several days to finish) pace. I’ve often wondered how people can finish a book in a day – did they take a speed reading class? Do they skip portions of the book? If you’re a crazy fast reader, I’d love to hear your skill secrets!
I’d like to think that I’m one of the “normal” people. For myself, it varies. Typically it takes me a few days, but sometimes, I can be slow. Like, 1 book in 15-20 days. It really depends on my schedule and interest in the book. Sometimes my good intentions get lost in the possibility of some extra sleep. I CAN read an average book in 4 days, under ideal conditions 🙂
What I really want to know is, how fast do YOU read? Are you one of the crazy fast, or the so-called “normal” readers?
