How many books do you read in a year?

Talk about books and writers here.

In my opinion the idea of summing up the number of books you read in a year time is not so preposterous as it seems to you. there is no use to emphasize that you're a reading and intelligent person - I was sure in it :wink: 8)

but I guess it's very easy, I do remember the books I read and the plot and the characters, so why not to count the books? :roll:

so how many books did you read so far starting in 2007? :D

My dear Lady! that's just fine as sometimes I read the book as long as I can - to prolong the pleasure!

In january I was reading a lot, though it was supposed I was preparing to my exams, now I started a new semester and my books were replaced by studying :(

So, this year I’ve read eight books in English, four in Russian, and one in Ukrainian. Thirteen in total.


So how do you know Ukrainian? Any relatives?
