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 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

hey guy, I'm telling the truth. I don't read mangas, anime or any comics except " Doremon ". I watch them on TV. Nowaday, I read novels, Vietnamese's ones and English's ones

I think I only read 2 book ... but I decide to read more than what I use to.. because I want to improve my English skills .. i hear that if you read more you will do more better in the writing ...
but I use to read a lot in Arabic .. I can't confirm how much but I remember I always keep reading whenever I have time to read.

I never count how many they are. I thought I have read about 30 books a year. But now I think that's enough. And I want to apply what I have read in my life. :twisted:

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
