All those novel freaks, how many pages do you typically read in one hour? Here, assume, the novel is of standard size and standard fonts...as average sized text. how quick a reader you are in your opinion?

I am not to sure how many pages I have or could read in an hour. I think if I am really in to the story I can finish a book in a day or two. Sometimes it is so interesting and exciting I cannot put it down. It is like watching a good movie and you just have to know the end of it as quickly as possible. If I had to take a guess, I would say between thirty to fourty pages an hour. I will let you know later when I finish of my Maeve Binchy novel, Heart and Soul.

Well i have never timed how many pages i read in one hour, but if my book is a page turner you will be surprised how fast i complete it. Once a friend lent me 'The Alchemist', the book was not his and he was returning it the next day. I took it home with me after work and i think i started the book round 6pm. The next day (morning) i gave him back the book - finished reading. He was amazed and didn't believed that i had finished it. For those out there who has read this book will agree with me that once you start it you don't want to put it down

I really couldn't say. I don't calculate the amount of pages I can read in an hour. And, for me, it varies from day to day, depending on my mood. Some days I might read more in an hour than other days.

Depending on the book, I read about a 400 page book in about 5-6 hours.
