Speed reader then? Or someone with reading time at work? Or a combination of factors?

I certainly can't keep things up at work and home chores and still keep a reading pace like that.

But I do listen to a lot of audio dramas - on my long commute to and from work. So maybe that should count. Wink

Haha, no reading time at work. But yes, I read very quickly. It has its drawbacks. Very Happy

Near as I can tell, I'm on 89 books this year so far. Bit slow, but there have been several complete re-reads of things like the Malazan books, the Gap, etc.

I haven't been keeping score, but I've been doing a lot of rereading this year. I have an expedition to the bookstore planned for next week, and I'm sure I won't leave empty handed, but in general, I still feel out of the loop from when I worked in a bookstore and would generally read at least one new book per week.


Edit: Fixed typo.

I look at those threads and think 'that sounds good, I should read that', and have been really bad at following through with it the past couple of years.

Like Murrin's book club. I really wanted to read all those books, and I think I only read one.

Oops, this is a bit out of date. Far as I can tell, I only managed 116 books for 2015.

Goodness, only managed about 75 books last year.

I blame computer games. Probably put 300-400 hours into gaming last year, with a corresponding reduction in my reading time.

Hysterical oh my god .. only 43 and we are only over half way through the year Hysterical

Methinks you will smash last years record. Is there a Guinness Book of Records record for the number of books read in a year? 🤔

So, that was 94 for 2017.

So far, for 2018, have done...39.

Really do seem to be reading less, but as before, concomitant increase in game playing so, hours been used up.
