I meant usually how long you will take to finish reading a 500 - pages of book? It probably takes me 3 weeks to do so? Because I have to work, I only have time read it after work or before I go to bed.

I take 3 days to read a book with 5oo pages. I work 9-4. Then go to gym 5-6. Then get home at 7.30. Then I eat, have a bath then go to my room to read. I read till 23 hr and go to sleep. In bus to work I read and back in bus to homw i read so my book finishes in 3 days;-)

That depends. If the book is really interesting, I'd want to finish it in one sitting. But if I had other things to do, perhaps It'll take me months to complete it.

It depends for me too. The ti me it takes me to read a book varies with the book that I am reading. Sometimes it could take me two days to two weeks and many times it could take months.

I take about two months because I have to do some other work as well. I like reading books as hobby. Evenif i try to understand this book completely then may be I take more time for that.

It depends. If the book is very interesting, I will keep on reading. So, normally, when I am reading an interesting book, it will take shorter time fr me to finish reading it.

To finish a book, it really depend on many factors, like how much time you can dedicate to it and is it really interisting. For a really interisting book of 500 pages, it will take me more than 1 week, say 70 pages per day to complete it, if i read it before going to bed.

It doesn't take me too long to finish a book, if it has sparked my interest early I could finish a book in one day. I have actually done that. I started one at work and then finished it when I got home.

I can finish it in 1 minutes, I'll flip the page burn it and stir it in water then *gulp* Just kidding, for 500 pages I normally finish it in 2-3 days. not sure if I can finish book with 500 folio size paper in 2-3 days though.

It really depends on the book, and the amount of time that I can dedicate to reading this book. These two issues definitely affect how fast I read a book.

Actually, it depends on the story and the language. I usually spend 2-3 days reading the book in my own language but will spend 2 weeks (even more) when I read english books. I don't know why, but maybe because I need more time to convert that language into my language and associate it. (this is happening in my head, not actually translating it in written)

If I have nothing to do then I might finish it that day or the next. If I am busy then it should only take a week two at the most. I am always reading a book and so I have gotton fast at it.

I finished the boo, Da Vinci Code, in three days despite of the busy schedule I have. With the other books, it usually takes me one to two weeks to finish them and I prefer doing it that way so I can chew every detail the book says.

I would finish it in a month or so. Like you I am also working and the only time I can read a book is before I sleep. It really depends on the alloted time I have. After work, I still have to do some errand at the house then I also have to check the net - email, mylot & other website I am hook right now.
