Book Blogger Hop: 12-18 December 2014

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question for Book Blogger Hop comes from Emily at Follow the Yellow Book Road:

How many books do you read in a week? How many hours do you spend reading a day?

I average between 2 and 4 books each week. The number of books I complete is related to a number of factors—not necessarily the length of the book or how many hours I spend reading. Some books just “read fast” and others don't. I can gobble up high-interest books without complex language very quickly. I tend to read at least two hours each day, sometimes more and sometimes less.

I'm linking up with other book bloggers at Book Blogger Hop which is hosted by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Come see what others have to say and join us if you wish.


  1. I tend to do that too. If the book is really good, I can finish it in a day. Still depending on my free time though. Am I making sense? :)


    1. Nyze, you're definitely making sense. No matter how good the book is and how much you're enjoying it, if you can't make the time you won't get it read. And conversely, even if you have plenty of time, some books just take longer to read.

      Good to see you've dropped by -- see you on the Internet.

  2. I'm kind of happy to see others at more or less the same reading pace as myself. Makes me feel a little less stressed out about the endless TBR, actually. :)

    And I think it can be hard to say exactly what makes a book read fast - for me, next to the story/theme, I think it's a lot to do with how well the author's language/rhythm matches my own.

    1. Karina, I think you've nailed it. The author's use of language is a big part of it. I tried to convey this by saying "without complex language", but you said it so much better. I was thinking of how the language in books has changed in about 40 years. When I read some backlist books, I find that the way language is used is just *different* from contemporary novels, sometimes even from the same author.
