Quick Random Survey - Books!

Hi all...I know I don't post much and I'm pretty much a lurker here, so I hope this is okay! I've got a question for you lovely people. I'm doing a stats project for my math class, and I want to know approximately how many books you read in a month. I wouldn't ask here except that I need at least 50 responses, and I'm not getting enough on Facebook.

Why is there not a '0' option?

Hmm it really depends on if I am able to go to the library or if I have money to buy books whether I am able to read a lot or not. I sometimes read up to 20+ books a month depending on whether I can get to the library or not. I chose 6 though since lately it seems I haven't been able to go to the library much and am flat broke. I think for everyone it really depends on how much time they have and if they can make it to the library.

I am kind of a total nerd when it comes to reading so I read fast and go through books like crazy. (lol and that isn't even counting all the manga and online stories I read).



“What if I'm so broken I can never do something as
basic as feed myself? Do you realize how twisted
that is? It amazes me sometimes that humans still
exist. We're just animals, after all. And how can an
animal get so removed from nature that it loses the
instinct to keep itself alive?”

I don't really read that much. :(

I used to read about 10 a month, but lately I've slowed down a lot and I have no idea why (it took me about two months to read The Hunger Games - not the trilogy, just the first book).

It depends on many things, how good the book is I'm reading, how much free time I've got and so forth.
On average I would read 1 or 2 books a month.
However on occasions when I'm cut off from technology, like on holiday, I can get through a book every couple of days.

Thanks, everyone! This helps a lot!

Sorry for the lack of a "0" option. I guess it shows how much I love reading - I didn't even really think of it.

Asura - Love it! Belle has always been one of my favorite Disney princesses because she loves books just like me. ^_^

It makes me happy that so many people here love reading and read a lot like I do! Yay books!

Possibly on average about 25. I'm not kidding. I read seriously fast. I read Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix in 4 hours. I read three books on the train coming home today, a 4 hour journey. So yeah. I usually read 2 in a day.




The past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.
