How many books do you read per week?
Depends. 2-3 would probably be most typical.
Anywhere from 1 to 7, depends on the week. Typically an average of 2 to 3 per week.
When I was single more than one a week now with kids one a month if I lucky
Usually 1, sometimes 2.
1 but sometimes 2. It depends on the length of the book and my schedule
Average 2-3. Some weeks 5-6 and some weeks 0-1.
Somewhere between 1 and 6. More if I don’t have to work. But I work anywhere from 39 to 60 hours a week on a typical week.
I listen to audiobooks when I’m working (I’m an embroiderer and work from home) so maybe 1 audiobook each week depending on length. I also read maybe a couple of books a week as well.
1 per fortnight is my limit
It takes me awhile to read a book, because I normally only read one hour a day, but not every day.
One, I wish i had more time to read
Usually 3 for clients then I try to slip in 1 or 2 just for me.
Sometimes 1-2 but then others can take me longer. Work and school don’t lend to a steady reading schedule
2-3 is about my average , I do read more occasionally
2 one pysical and one ebook on my Kindle
Anywhere to .5 to 5 a week. Depends how good it is and if I can’t put it down
Sometimes a few chapters, sometimes 2 or 3 books. Depends on life.
Usually 2. Sometimes 3
2 to 4
Been on the same one for 3 weeks
@Vanessa sameee. Glad I’m not the only one. It takes me a few weeks to finish a book lately.
Its frustrating!! Stupid work gets in the way most of the time
6-10,depends on how quick I can get done,so can work on the next one.
Anywhere from 1 to 4 depending on size and how good
1-4 depending on the week
Depends on how much reading time I have, plus the number of pages in a book. Also if it a fast read, or a slower read, which depends on the author’s writing style. ☺ There’s a lot of to take in when reading a book, the biggest thing being the number of pages, and my time for reading, it’s 1-3 usually. ☺Plus working hours, cleaning the house, laundry, cooking, baking. Yuppers lot of things, besides reading.
depends on how much work i have and how much free time and how thick the book is…i have been known to read as many as 10 in a week
1 or two depending on how much time I have to read on top of law classes
1 if I’m lucky. ?
Varies. 1-3 usually.
Depends how busy I am. Last week I finished 5. This week so far I’m still on my 2nd.
None since i have had a baby! Whenever i think i have a chance i am asleep within minutes.
I remember those days! But fast forward, now my 18 year old daughter is in my bookclub: ) (And sleep while you can!)
If I can keep up the pace, I’ll average out to 3 per week by the end of the year.
Used to be about 4-5 depending on size. Now after marriage i’m lucky if i get 2 finish.
I read 2-5 and listen to 1 while I’m driving and running errands.
I try to read atleast 1 (although I often have several on-going), because I don´t have as much time on my hands as I would like. I´m so busy studying, but you can bet that I´m gonna read more once I´m done!
one, if I’m lucky.
2 to 3 books depending on how long they are!
2 – 5
120 to 200
@Rachel per week!?
@Teresa yeah I have way to much free time
There are only 168 hours in a week….so if you read 200 books in a week…(assuming 0 hours of sleep for the entire week)…..oh nevermind.
Are these short stories? Curious how someone can read that many & still have time to do normally daily functions lol. I thought I read a lot ?
There is just no possible way to read (at a minimum) 6240 books a year.
We did say week not year right!?
At least 50
@Lesley I’d love to know which 50 you read last week and how! I can’t even pick 50 I’d like to read lol
What!!!!!! I am struggling to complete this many in an year?. How do you do it?
I’m lucky if I read half a book in a week. I work too much.
Maybe 2-3 but I’m getting ready to retire so hopefully that number will go up.
Usually 2 or 3. It depends on the lengths of the books.
probably 2 … maximum 3 (if I can)
12 to 21. Depends on if it is fiction or not
3 or 4 per week
4-5 sometimes more
1, and sometimes start a second.
I’m a slow reader. I read 2-3 books a month.
About 5 a week.
I usually read 1-3 books a MONTH, if I’m lucky! To busy with full time job, 3 kids and a farm.
One a week of it’s fairly short.
About one depending on the length.
Usually two. Sometimes one of it’s really long
Before I had my second child I read 1-2 books a week… now I read 1 book every 2 months ? I can’t focus!
I read about 4 a week depending on the pages
Depends on the length and how much I want to read them. I read the whole Crazy Rich Asians series in a week, that’s 3
Depends, usually 2 to 5.
3 – 5
Depends on what life has thrown at me that week. Most weeks I average a book a day, 7/week. Some weeks I’ll read up to 3 books a day, 18-25/week. I also listen to 1-2 audio books each week, depending on how much traveling I’m doing that week.
i try to read 2 books per day
Taking into consideration I have 3 jobs and work between 8-13 hours a day with a full day off every two weeks, I get in maybe one book a month and 3-4 audiobooks as I drive 2-3 hours a day.
Depending on work and mood probably 2
Depends on work, usually 5 or 6, but I read super fast, and lack sleep.
Depends. From one to three, depending on the size and the time available to read. I usually exclude reference books on writing and craft.
if im not busy 3 or 4. if i am maybe 2
How do you guys do it? It takes me at least a month to finish one book.
@Subramanian I’m reading the replies wondering the same thing!
@Subramanian i often snatch a few minutes here & there during the day, while waiting for appointments or while in the car waiting when I pick my daughter up, etc. you’d be amazed at how quickly those minutes add up to full chapters. I also don’t watch much tv, so in the evening I usually read for a few hours.
@Subramanian Same here. I’m sooooo slow. I would love to be able to read 2+ books a week but it’s a huge accomplishment for me if I get one done in a week. ?
@Balquis Great 🙂
@Trisha I’ll try some of your pointers that would help me to read more books. Thanks Trisha Wicklund 🙂
That sounds great in my books if you can complete a book in a week unlike me where I could only manage 1 per month. Thanks Taylor faith. 🙂
Not enough! 🙂
in high scool 1 per week. now one per month
Lucky if I finish 1 a month.
I work and read for work (and grade, and make lessons plans) but for leisure reading I usually read big novels or novels in my 2nd language, so 1-2 per month.
@Andrew what’s your second language? Thats really cool. I’ve studied Spanish for a long time so one of my goals is to read a book in Spanish. ? It takes me a longgggg time to get through a page though ?
Taylor Faith English is my first, I studied Russian, then Spanish and dabbled with French. I teach college Spanish language and lit courses. I read both English and Spanish for fun. But I think that reading Spanish keeps my language skills polished. And one never stops learning a foreign language. I’m always coming across a new word, phrase. <3
Depends on the time I have available and how big the books are, but about 2 usually.. more if the books are small, none if they’re like 1000 pgs then I’m lucky if I finish it in a month..
Two or three usually.
I can manage one book a week.
0,33 maybe. I know, it’s awful, but I’m so busy with school and other hobbies, and right now the series I’m reading hurts to read so it takes longer
Don’t fret. It’s not “awful”. As with all hobbies, if you’re enjoying your time when you’re doing them then you’re winning!!!!
@Angelina So true, and thanks 🙂
1/2 of 1
1 or 2.
5 or 6, it depends.
I work a lot so, barely 1….(I can only read After getting ? & not running errands).
7 – 10 books a week
