| I can usually read them in a few hours over two nights or so. Vin Fiz was the only one I made it through in one sitting.

I envy you: Two months. It takes me about 2 days to read a good book. If I have insomnia, one days.
I force myself to read more slowly now... Savouring each paragragh and chapter.
If a boook has about 1,000 pages... Like Lored o the Rings, that took me about 3 months to read originally.
But a regular 400-page book, which is the average size... Depends on the print size. I'd say... 3, 4 days.

| Depends what else I have on my plate at the time. I sometimes have a few books on the go because I haven't had time to finish one off and am not in the mood to knock it over. If I get into a ripping good story like a CC and have the time to sit down and take it all in rather than grabbing lunchbreaks etc, I think I can knock over a good sized book in a week.
Usually reading a magazine as well so depends on my reading mood!

| Hmmm...well I guess it kinda depends on the book. For example, if it has anything to do with school, then I will take as long as I possibly can.
If it's a Dirk Pitt book, I'd say.......4 days tops.
Hehe...but i'f it happens to be a new Harry Potter book, well, I start reading those suckers the moment I get home from the midnight release parties and don't stop till i'm done...which is usually around 6 o'clock the next night. Yeah, it's a good thing those books come out only every 3 years.

|ToK took me 8 hours to read approximately. I read about a page per minute.|

|if I have time to read then about 2-3 days but if it's during the semester can take up to 3 weeks... if at all. It also depends on the author/language that is used, medievial languaged books take up to a week when I have time to read modern language books take way less|

| I am a reasonably fast reader I think, though it depends on the book. Fiction books I read in bed before sleep and usually take a week or two to get through, non-fiction books I like to read at the breakfast table and it could take up to a month to get through. On the other hand a book by an author I really like, like CC, will only take me a day or so. I got Treasure of Khan for Christmas, plan to start it tomorrow and should have it finished by the end of the weekend.
A couple of years ago I started a book diary, writing down the name & author of each book I read, what I thought of it and importantly where I got it from. A quick look back over 2006 shows I forgot to update it for a couple months during April and May but so far I have read 29 books this year, with Treasure of Khan still to come.

| I'm a fast reader, main reason I believe is because I'm to impatient . I want to know what happens and if I stop reading an exciting book in the middle, then I can't concentrate properly afterward because I want to know what happens next. After I've finished it once then I can go back an reread it some time later to pick up the details I might have forgotten.
Finished Treasure of Khan 5-6 hours after I started but Black Wind took me ages

|I'm a slow reader when it comes to long books, especially non-fiction. With fiction I can pace myself so as not to read too fast but not take forever either. Then again, since I have two sources of income (not counting my wife's), housework, plus watching quite a bit of tv and spending time on the computer, it's quite a jampacked day for me with little sleep.|

| I can usually read abook in 10 to 12 hrs. spread over 2 days. I retain probably 85 to 90% of what I read but, still enjoy re-reading a few months later.
I've re-read some of the earlier CC books 5 or 6 times since 1973. I guess I'm leting the truth out about my age.
