I probably average a book a week or so. I always have several going at a time. A couple in my car to read at the park, at the bedside, and in the living room. I love to escape into the pages of a good book.

I used to read LOADS I read thousands in the 80's and the 90's and I mean thousands. Around 2000ish I felt a little burned out and took a total break. I read sporadically after that, including my King fest which I made a thread about, that was like 2006. I'm burned out again now...so I won't want to re-read Don DeLillo's Underworld any time soon. It's a good one though actually so read it yourself if you haven't, it's a long one though...

A book a month is typically my quota, but if I really get into a series I can go up to a book a week.

I'm the Librarian and the Director of one library with 2 locations. I'm a busy bee.
I don't shush anyone. I'm the loudest person I know at work. I read a ton of reviews, blurbs, abstracts and summaries. Reading an entire book takes time.
The person that shhhhhss people is usually a clerk. not a librarian. the media portrays librarians wrong all of the time.

I used to read a lot of books.    Now I pretty much just read stuff on sports and current events on the Internet.   Probably 5 a year, mostly for work or on work related topics.

I read 1-2 per month.  I trake the train to work, and I'm almost always reading a book.  I don't read much once I get home, or on weekends (unless I have to go into work).  It usually takes me about 2-3 weeks to get through a book of 400+ pages, which is about the norm for me.  I also subscribe to a couple of magazines, so I might take a week off between books.

I read most anything I can get my hands on as long as it isn't a romance novel, (can a romance book seriously be considered a novel)? Re-reading A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin right now.

Several years ago I made it a point to read a book per week, but I inevitably buy more than I have the time to read, resulting in a yearly backlog of 20-25 books. At this rate I'll die with shelves full of unread books.
