S&F, i read that question and tried to decide whether or not you actually wanted a response. 90% of the time when im asked a questions on BHM the answer isnt as important to the person as the question. so i decided to save thinking time and just not answer but i see i was wrong in this case
and now im going to bore you with the very long answer.
i like reading but i read mostly fiction and topics that interest me at the moment. i have silly rules in my head and one rule is that what ever book i start i have to finish no matter how long it takes. so asking me how long a book takes to read sounds like an easy question but its not. ive read books in a day but ive also had one book that took well over 10 years and another took about 5 to 7 (dont judge me).
since i made up the rules i also know how to work around them. for instance, i started Babbitt and made it to page 34. every single day for almost a year i look at the book but choose not to pick it up. i know i will finish it before i hit the year mark but right now my heart isnt in it. so to get around the rule ive been listening to audiobooks and reading books of different genres.
this leads to the second rule that i have, i must finish every book that i actually own. as of right now i think i only have 5 books in my collection including Babbitt that i have left to read before i can repurchase. this again is were audiobooks come in since i get them off the internet and download them it also bypasses my rule.
so how long does it takes me to read a book...girl i dont know
