Well, since I don't really keep record, I will have to guess.
But wait, I have a blog, where I review the books I read. In fact, you might notice that they are numbered. So divide that by the weeks and you have an answer, right?
I will admit that is at least one reason I started the blog, to keep track of what I read and what I thought of each book. A noble idea. Yes, that it true but as with so many things, it did not totally work out that way. Because I will admit it. I am much happier reading a book than writing a review about it.
Yes, I do like to share my opinions. Especially about books. But for some reason I have the hardest time sitting down and putting those reviews to paper...so to speak. So I have many books that I have read this year and not reviewed. Some are one I was not that trileed with but a few are ones I liked. I find if I do not write the review as soon as I have finished the book the odds of writing a one falls off a steep cliff. A few make it back up the cliff face but not two many.
So maybe I need a new way to keep track of the books I read.
Or maybe I need to buck up and write the darn reviews.
Ok, after all that whining, back to the question.
I think I read on average between 2 and 3 books a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less and sometimes none at all. On a rare occasion I get a sort of book block and may go a whole week or two without even opening a cover. But then I balance that out by reading 4 in a week.
So my answer would be 2.5 a week...10.8 per month...130 per year.
And most of them are sitting boxes in my basement.
Stop by and take a few home!
