I'm pretty, super fast. I read about 1.5 creepy stories on /x/ in a night.

Fairlly often. A few books per week. About 150 a year. Mostly shorter ones though.

>>3004011 >Answers question like oh, you know, just this many >Then asks what the question is for, a question that is actually a disguise to show that not only does he read a fuck ton of books but that the mere question of how many is absurd and somehow misplaced on the forum about books, /lit/

>>3003998 >>3004011 How does one read as much as almost 0.5 books a day, every day, in average? Wish I could read that much/fast without going insane.

I will read about 75-85 this year, but I read huge books, often massive non-fic tomes. Here is my goodreads user challenge. Inb4 >needs a challenge I dont, its just something stupid to do, and it counts the total pages youve read in a year.

>>3004068 Everyone but me at my state school. I would say that /lit/ tier readers (at least the ones who arent lying) are 1/250 people or so, with deviations for populations that are around certain universities or trendy cultures. I bet in Williamsburg or the village that number is way lower.

Another bump, no one has said how often they read yet.

I read every day, sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for a few hours. Read about 30-100 pages average, finish a book or two a week if they aren't really long. If a book isn't interesting me much or is hard to read it might take me a few weeks to read it.

About three books a week. Up this week is The Sickness Unto Death, 4.48 Psychosis and The Trial. I'll probably have room for one or two more, since those are all short. I only have one day off during the week.

Read every day; finish about 60 or 70 books per year (finished 63 last year, on course for ~70 this year). That's including big books, which I love, and I don't speed read or skim.
