How long does it take everyone to read a book that’s about 600-1000 pages?How long does it take everyone to read a book that’s about 600-1000 pages? C #questionnaire
Depends on the book. Contemporary fiction 6-10 hours. Non-fiction or classic fiction maybe a bit longer.
omg that would take me months lol slow reader over here lol
I took 3 months to read Gone with the wind
@Linda omg me too! It’s really weird. The Great Gatsby took me a week but whole hunger games trilogy took four days
Some books are too short and some are just never ending! I loved Gone with the wind so I didn’t mind it so much. 3 months was me “quick-reading”
@Linda I love Les Misérables and it took me six months
You’ve read Les Misérables??? Wow!! That book scares me. I’ve heard it’s a difficult read. Kudos to you. I’ll try it soon(ish)
@Linda it’s not as difficult as it appears to be, just a little long winded
@C it is a lil intimidating but its a good story tho
Yeah! That’s probably why I haven’t picked it up yet. I think I’ll try it soon, though
Depends on the book and my mood. If I can shut my mind off and allow myself to actually read a book it doesn’t take me long.
Depends, uninterrupted I could have it done in an afternoon but with my life right now probably 2 or 3 days.
If it is one I love and holds my interest, I can read 1,000 page book in about a week, depending on appointments, interruptions, etc.
It depends on how Long you wish to.. Just like eating a delicacy, u may choose to eat it all in minutes or savor each bite!!
Maybe 7 to 10 days if reading a few chapters each day!
I finished ‘I Am Pilgrim’ in 7 days. The book consist around 900 pages..
1 or 2 days…if I find it interesting
Depends on the book. I read a 699 page book in 2 days a few months ago, but sometimes a 400 page book can take over a week
About 8 hours
Depends on how focused I am or how much I’m liking the book. But no more than a week (I’d probably DNF if it went that far) Probably no less than 2 days.
if i like it and have time a day or two
If I tried really hard I could finish it in a weekend. But that would mean non stop reading. But with my internship I would say at least 7 days.
A month if I am in school
2 weeks if I have a lot of free time
It all depends.
a while. depends on the book
Jealous of people that can in less than a week. Do you all work outside the home? If not how do you do it?
I can take about a week or two. depending on how interesting that book is and the time i have on my hands
never read a book that long
Probably 2-3 weeks as I work full time. But it does depend on the book and the mood I’m in
Depends on if the book really grabs me. The Illuminae series is about 500-600 pages each book and I read all three in 9 days.
Stephen King books are always about 200 pages too long !!!
A week if I love it. Much longer if it’s a tedious read.
Depends on the book. If it’s one you can’t put down two or three days or it could take a month!
I haven’t attempted to try but probably 3 months lol
A day to three days depending on different variables
It depends on what else is going on in my life .
A 400 page book can take me about an uninterrupted Saturday. Lord of the Rings is 1,000 pages. That one takes me about 5 months with work and all.
I don’y usually rea books tat long.
If its a slow read, it will take me a month. Fast read and loving it, 3 weeks
Depends on the book. I read Pillars of the Earth in a week because I couldn’t put it down, but plugging thru War and Peace because to me it’s a difficult read!!!
Months. I’m slow. ?
A month xd i’m reading a little life now whic is about 700 ish and it’s gonna take me a looong time ? but it’s good though!
A month. My uninterrupted reading time is a thing of the past.
3 months because I read 5 books at a time.
With work, my toddler, exercise etc, probably around 2 months for a thousand pager
Depends on how quickly I am drawn into the story
If it’s a really good book, probably 2 days
Depends on how good it is ??
Depends on if it is dense non-fiction, fiction, fantasy, or a biography.
It is easy to read fantasy, sci fi, and a lot of fiction faster. Non-fiction though takes a lot longer if you want the material to be processed and stored in your longer term memory.
Depends on the genre. If it’s something challenging or dry and and technical, a few weeks. If it’s something that I can’t put down, a couple of days.
Depends on the book. Most books I read that big are nonfiction. Nonfiction always takes me longer
Idk since I never read a book with 1000 pages. I can read fast if I like the genre. If not, more than a week for sure
Depends how engaging it is.
24 hours to 9 days if it’s good
Probably 2-3 weeks for me
2-3 days if its a really good book
If it’s over 500 pages I can’t even look at it.
Most of the books that interest me are around 500 – 1,000 pages.
It takes me about a month. I’m a slow reader with very little “free time”.
Maybe 3 days if I don’t have to work. But a week- 2 if I have to work.
3-4 days. Took me 3 for War Storm and thats 662
1 or 2 days if I really like the book
Week or 2 depending on my schedule.
It really depends on writing style for me. Are we talking a classic like War and Peace (1392p) or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (759p). War and Peace is twice as long as HP, but I could read Rowling in a couple days tops, whereas Tolstoy would take me weeks, maybe months.
I don’t read those books. ?
It can take me a while simply due to a lack of time. I work two jobs that keep me from 7-8 to 10-11 at night
I’m with you there. I work 44 hours a week and I also love gaming so I share my time between reading, gaming, watching tv series episodes and also spending time with my boyfriend. Then there’s all the chores and other boring adult life stuff. ?
silly racing:we talk about reading,not competition
It depends. I’m in a reading slump so…
Me too the last book I finished was weeks ago
In fact this is why I made this post
I’m trying to decide if I should start reading another book while I read the one I’m currently on. I did that quite often in the past.
It depends on the book. A novel takes less time than non-fiction.
Three weeks to a month.
About two weeks to a month depending on the book.
can’t even remember the last time I had a book with that many pages :O
a week or less.
About half a lifetime. Seriously, I cannot remember last time I read a book that large. I try to stick to shorter reads, 200-300 pages, so I can easily fit it in my backpack or coat pocket
About 4 days
If I have the time and I’m really into the book, 8-12 hours in mostly one sitting. If I’m spreading it out a little at a time, probably a week to 10 days; usually if I’m spreading it I have significantly shorter blocks of time to work with.
2 days (saturday and sunday) if the book is good. And for weekdays i can finish that for 3 or 4 days
Depends on if it busy week outside of work or the type of book, is it a fast paced read that very character focused and draws u in…. or it more of a complex/intellectual book, no judgement I certainly read both and both are great Just different and would be different in terms of time needed
It depends on life, if I am traveling for a vacation I can get it read in a few days but normal life I only read about 20 mins before I go to sleep ? the reason I am now loving audio books! I can get through the those larger books in a few days while I get on with over tasks!
I work full time so usually a week
Depends on how good it is. I can read a big Harry Potter book in 2-4 days, but The Stand by Stephen King took me 2.5 months.
You guys are really fast readers… I feel ashamed
A couple of weeks – I could do it faster, but don’t usually have the time.
really depends on the book. and occasionally the week.
Depends on the book and what im doing but i can get it done in a day if i wanted too
It depends on the book.
How much free time do I have? If I have no commitments and am engrossed in the book, about 2 days. Otherwise with varying degrees of interest? 3-10 days. I easily read 60-70 pages an hour.
Depends if it’s good about a week to two
A long time.
2 days if I’m totally obsessed otherwise about 5 days
Depends how “page turning” it is. 1 to 2 weeks.
Havent read that much or doesn’t pay attention to page number ?
It depends but lately I’ve been reading the Outlander books which are all between 800-1400 pages and I’ve usually taken about 6 weeks to 2 months to get through them.
Really depends. Is that all I’m doing?
A couple of weeks right now. Used to take less time, but I had more time to read.
Haven’t tried it reading a book that size but I would say a few months if I tried reading 20 pages or more each day.
2-3 weeks, depending on how dense it is
3 months, only read when on the bus shopping…lol
Maybe two days if I don’t have to work. If I have to work then at least a week.
About 2 weeks.
It depends on how good a job the author did on making it readable. With some readers, I can belt out a fairly large book in a day if it holds my interest. In other cases, it could take months in which case I would give it up long before it reached that point.
It depends on the book, the language I’m reading it in, if it’s new or a reread and the amount of reading time I have. I’d say somewhere between one and three weeks.
It took me a week 7 days to read Ford Maddox Ford 906 pages novel ‘Parade’s End.
considering i have a busy schedule with houseowkr and three kiddos, about 2.5 weeks xD
I just read an 840 page book and it took a month. I work 65 or so hours a week and have two little ones who get most of my attention.
