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 caseLOL

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 knowLOL

Kris Jenner and all things Kardashian, by Kris Jenner.
I just want to understand what goes through those people's mind, and so far I got that they believe they deserve everything they want (and they do get it, as you can see for their success) and that what matters to them is parties and material things.

nah length doesnt matter to me but boring turns  what i enjoy into a chore.  one book was Sophie's World.  it was a book i used to carry around to read when i was stuck places but there was so much info (philosophy) that i kept putting it down because i needed to take notes to absorb it all.  if you saw the book youd laugh because im pretty sure its in the teen genreLOL well anyway i ended up either losing the book or giving it away because i still cant find it.  then when i wasnt thinking about it i found the audiobook which was great because it allowed me to take notes.  half way through the book the person just stopped posting so i was stuck.  a year goes by and i found the other half and picked up were i left off and finally finished it this year and loved it.

the second book was Pope Joan, the first few chapters of this book were dull beyond belief. i kept putting the book down and restating and finally just left it on my night table and literally looked at it every day for years.  fortunately, back then i hadnt adopted my rule of finishing every book i start.  but once i did start my rule about reading i couldnt just keep ignoring that book and finally read it.  im really glad i did because once i got throught the rough bits it picked up and turned out to be really interesting and worthwhile read. (its about a woman who pretends to be a man and becomes the pope)
