How Average of a Reader Are You?

I just spent a long weekend in the North Woods of Minnesota. I packed 5 books to read. You know how many I got to? About a quarter . . . of one. How pathetic is that? I thought it was pretty schlotzy of me not to devour more pages because surely the average reader in America would’ve gone through that pile, right?

Actually, no. The average reader in America finishes 12 books a year, according to a report from Pew Research.

So far this year I’ve read 8, but one of those was a 3 in 1 book dealio, so really I’m at 11. It’s only October so I figure I’m going to be above average.

How about you? Will you hit that goal? And may I make a recommendation for you to read?

Well I am behind on my Goodreads book challenge, but knowing 12 is an average makes me feel a lot better. I am currently at 16.

I usually read a book in a week, sometimes two depending on how long it is, how interested I am [well...] and what else I've got going on!! (in other words how exhausted I am when I go to bed. oh, did I mention I read when I go to bed?)
ps, I love both of yours, Michelle, and couldn't put them down!

I've read about 12 so far....not all were novels, but I suppose they count. I have a lot more on my tbr list that I am going to do my best to read before the year is out.
