How many books do you read in a year?

Postby Dixie » Wed Sep 13, 2006 7:51 am

Last night I was curious about how much I read, and I made a list of all the books I have read this year. If I have not forgotten any, I have read 16 books so far, and I'm about to finish another.

How much do people read, anyway?

For the past three years I’ve been writing down the titles and authors of all the books I’ve read. I don’t know why I do it. I guess as a statistics student, I just like keeping truck of everything :lol:
So, this year I’ve read eight books in English, four in Russian, and one in Ukrainian. Thirteen in total.

oh wow this is some very good idea, Dixie. I have no idea how much books I read this year because I never count them. I think I will start from now on though. Or maybe rather from January...

Books, in general. I usually read fiction, but my question was just about books in general.

I often read different kinds of books so I don't remember the exact numbers. :roll:

I have counted - 18 books I definitely remember, both the author and title and also what it is about, but I'm not sure that I have covered all the books I read- so eighteen so far
