well... I don't remember. I read about 5 books during school time, and then during summer I read like... 10-30 x___o So yes, more than 10 a year for sure.

Within a year I have read many books and stories in collections for freetime. I think I have my da (real father) obession. We tend to read a lot more when we are trying to distract our mind from the things that are hurting us emotional and mentally.

I love to read! I read at least ten books a week! After I finish my library books, I start reading my sisters. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

I own over 400 Readers Digest Condensed Books which contain 4 novels per book, not to mention the soft covered novels and series I have. My library card wears out after a year and I just love it. My son can read as well as I can he just chooses not to. The new HP book when it came out took me 5 hours to read and I have read it 3 times so far. Books are my best friends.

The amount of books I read a year always depends on which books I notice at the book store and if it is in a series. So far this year I already read 9 books and I have 2 more that I'm waiting on to be released.

I usually finish a five hundred page book a week but last year I had a job at the public library during the school year so I was able to finish my homework, do my job and after everything else, I was able to just sit down and read. I think that year I read the most I could ever remember reading in a month. I'm thinking about taking that student helper job again.

Depending on how into a book I am, I can usually finish three or four books a week.. I read the entire Twilight series (each book about 500pgs) in under a week. Sometimes it'll take me three weeks to finish a 200pg book, so it really all depends for me ^^; I definitely read more than 10 books a year though, haha.

Last year I read around 90 books, and these are only the ones that are 200+ pages. I read all 7 HP books in a week. Yes, I have too much time on my hands....

I used to read about 2 books a day... until I discovered fanfiction.

Now I read maybe 3 books a month, but hours of fanfics a day (I read too many to be honest lol).

I need to start reading more books /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

I am very fond of reading, I buy books and read them usually straight away. I mostly read them when I have nothing else to do. Im very fast at reading I read the first 6 Harry Potter books keeping in mind that I was at school most of the day!

I think I average around a book a week. Often I'll get started on a book and get stuck reading something I'm not all that interested in. I have to finish it though. I think I could probably read more, if I could stay off the internet!

I read a lot, my friends say way too much but I love it. I think I read around 5 books per week in the summer time sometimes even more if they are fantastic, during the school term though I read around 3 or so books a week.
