How many books do you usually read on your Kindle every week, and how often?

I read 5-7 depending on number of pages. I read a lot and with my paperwhite I can read without turning on light and waking up hubby. I read an average of 5/6 hours a day. Like it better than TV. right now I am on a haunted or ghost books.

2-4, depending on the books. I tend to have 3-5 books going at the same time, all the time.

Something light for before bed. I always have a favorite going, Jane Eyre, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Accidental Tourist...

Something Inspirational, Bible study by John Piper or Josh Harris.

Something biographical if I'm lucky.

I read about 3 hrs daily and should finish 200+ for the year. I use several KKs and KP an sometime the Fire. but I get confused about what I'm reading so I'm going to only use the KF mainly and while that one charges I'll use the KK. Aren't they fun!!

About 5 books a week. I read every day, and read 258 books on Kindle last year.

I'm averaging about 2 books per week.

Edit: I forgot to mention when: about an hour in the morning while I wait to eat my breakfast after I've taken my meds, about an hour in the afternoon (or more, if I'm in an exciting part), and about 1/2 hour or until I'm sleepy at night.

I'd say about 2-5 a week. More if I get really sucked in to something and finish it in one sitting.

I'm about 2 a week at this point - just finished my 103rd (I started keeping track at the beginning of February after reading a book about keeping a journal of books - rating them etc.). Some months (like July - I'm the director of VBS at my small church) I barely read any books at all I was so busy. I read during the day and then right before going to sleep (that's when I read books I've read before - my rereadables - otherwise I have a hard time stopping!).

Are you just curious or are you going to do something with this data?

i'd say 10 a week. i just finished book 371 for this year. i've read a book a day for years, and several days this summer i finished 4 in a day. it's much easier on the kindle- i had to carry those ten books into the house every saturday back in the old days.

I read 5-7 a week. I enjoy a lot of the freebies and also borrow quite a few from my local library.

I feel like a slacker with an average of 2 books a week ;) Like Meya, I tend to have 3-5 books going at once. Right now have 4 that average 300 pgs each. I've had a few reads this year that were 800+ so that will pull down my averages. I read on my Kindle whenever I have time during the day and always for a long stretch (sometimes too long, lol) before bed.

2-3 but my Kindle is broken so I switched to my Samsung tablet. I haven't really gotten the hang of it because I have used the Kindle for many years.

I read about 100 books a year, so I average 2 a week. Most are on my Kindle, but I also listen to some audiobooks. Sometimes I manage to sneak in a few minutes to read in the morning when my youngest child is in preschool, but most of my reading and listening is after the kids are asleep at night.

I average a little over 1 book per week. Last year I read a little more than that. Most books I read are over 300 pages, some are close to 1000 pages. I keep track of my books read on shelfari. Last year I read about 21,000 pages. So far this year I've read a little over 15,000 pages.

CBRetriever says:
really depends - I've been working on an almost 1000 page book for about two weeks. I don't have much time for reading, so I read mostly on my commute to work which is about an hour a day. Sometimes I'll have time to read in the evening but that's not too often, but I do manage to get in about 15 minutes before going to sleep and I've been working on a Virginia Woolf complete books of one for quite a while (the Complete Mark Twain took about two years, but he was rather prolific)

0-6 Depends on what's going on around me, how good the book is etc.

About the same amount of hours reading. If I'm in a really good book I'll stay up until 1-2 in the morning to finish it.

There is a book that I am debating about ordering. It has 10,000 pgs. by James Herbert. I saw a movie recently from one of his books 'Haunted' and I looked him up. Am reading a couple of his now. Back to the large book. I would not put that on a Kindle but order a used paperback for about $3.00. Can someone actually write that big a book on one story line?

CBRetriever says:
it might be a typo - click on one of the other formats of the book and see how many pages it is

Mary if you are looking at "The Dark" it is a typo as CBRetriever suggests. Click on the paperback version and you see it says 442 pages.

If there was a book with 10,000 pages - I would much prefer to read that on a Kindle over a DTB. I can't imagine having to hold a book that size. That's one of the huge advantages (in my opinion) of a Kindle - your hand doesn't have to fit around a giant block of paper any more!

The densest paper books I have are two volumes of "Norton Anthology of English Literature" which have extremely thin paper and about 2500 pages per volume. They're each about 2 inches thick, so a 10,000 book would be thicker than it was tall...not physically possible to read. The good news is, when you tried to open it, it would break up into multiple volumes.

I can't believe that I didn't realize it was not possible and was a typo. 'I didn't think' my hubby would say. It being only '442' pgs I might get it. He is one of the few authors I have read who can really raise goosebumps on my arms. And I have read lots and lots of this genre. Thanks for setting me straight.

That's true - my Bible has 2,226 numbered pages (this doesn't include the end study notes pages or the beginning notes) - a book with 10,000 pages would be insane!
