Books! How many do you read per year?

palindromic palindromic
As a college student/massive nerd, I end up reading a fairly large amount of books every year (I think I went through about...20 to 30 in the past couple semesters, most of which are academic since I don't get a lot of time for "fun" reading. Or something like that). How many do you end up reading per year?

For the comments: what kinds of books do you like? Reading anything awesome right now?

I used to really love reading and would just devour books left and right. However things have gotten busy and I don't have time like I used to to curl up with a good book.

I read dozens of books each year, some of them at the same time. I also have eclectic tastes ranging from classics to science fiction.

I am in a graduate program and the reading is between 125 and 250 pages a night. So that probably translates to a ridiculous amount. Not much time for pleasure reading.

26-30 sounds about right. It's been a slow couple of years with a little one running around.

Same. I don't even keep track. But besides reading for school, I also read a good deal on my own, so probably 30+.

I love reading romance novels. I know it seems lame but it's such a break from reality so I look forward to it.

I love reading, and my Baby always says I read fast like crazy. So I can always read a lot of them whenever I want to.

I love to read too, I just haven't had a lot of time this year. I really want to get back into books though! Other than Eden, it's probably my favorite hobby.

It depends on what I'm doing. Between full-time work and running a company on the side, I don't get as much time for it as I used to, and never as much time as I did when I was a receptionist just after college. I had 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for it. But I'm also a speed reader, so when I get time, I can knock them back quickly. But I am also picky about books. I prefer non-fiction, or classics, so it takes me time to find new books.

On my schedule now, about 10 a year.

Reading is one of my favorite things to do so somewhere around 16-20 per year sounds about right give or take a bit.

I read pretty much constantly and have been known to devour a book within a few hours. They add up quickly around here.

I am currently a Revolutionary War research writer and read lots of books, journals, old documents, and diaries. It becomes even more difficult when reading sentence and word choices people use in that period of our history. Many historians find the need to modernize the spelling and punctuation of the eighteenth-century prose. In some ways however, readers and biographers hesitate to forfeit the special period flavor that comes from preserving all the oddities of contemporary writing. This awkward and stilted style to modern readers make it hard to understand the message or meaning which those people used simply because of a lack of education of the person in question. I find, however, that the more material that I read, the easier and closer you become connected to the lives lived by those in our distant past!

To be honest, I usually don't read any. I hate reading books. They take too long to get to the point.
