I'm not talking about school books either unless they are actual books people would read without being in school. (Curriculum books don't count)

I currently read NONE per year, but I'm hoping to change that. :lol:

How many do you read per year and are you happy with your answer?

I usually read about 5 or 6 new books a year, not including manga. I re-read books like no one's business. I am very pleased with my answer.

Yeah it varies a lot. Last year (well,2007) and the year before I read loads, they are the years I found most of what are now my favourite books. But 2008 was a slooow year for reading, and 2009 has been even worse so far lol. I'm reading a book at the moment and I think it's the first one of the year :rolleyes:

Oh, and I'm not particularly happy with that because I'm on a gap year at the moment with heaps of free time, I should have got round to way more reading!

Seriously? None?

It varies from one year to another. Last year I had 6 maybe. It was fine but I read them back to back. Like what I said in the other thread here, I go through reading phases. So I read those books in less than 2 months and then I had the rest of the year without reading any book.

It's March now and I haven't read a single book, just my magazines.

I read probably about 12 books per year, with leisure reading (that's a minimal) and school, I'll read 12 since summer reading is a pain and they give you like 6 books to read.

I'll admit that I don't really like reading that much, I'm partial to writing, of course i realize that it's necessary to read in order to improve writing skills.

I currently read about 10 books a year. It seems that I'm always in the middle of reading something. Some say I read alot but personally I don't think that 10 books is much at all really. I love reading just about as much as I do surfing the internet. To each his own I suppose.

Honestly, there's no set amount for me. I do read a good few though. I love to read, and basically I start a new book right after I finish the last one usually, but right now I'm not reading as much as I normally do.

It really varies for me. There isnt really a set amount for me either.

I would say perhaps 10 books a year would be an average. I havent read any this year so far! It's quite a poor show for me.
