Do you know how many books you read in a year? Since i left school/university. I hardly even read the whole book in a year. Is it normal, or do i need to do something about it?

I read around 10-15 books in a year, depending on how many book sales I've gone in a year. The books I read are usually fiction, so reading is a pleasure to me and not a chore. Perhaps you may want to try reading different types of books? Some people lose interest in reading because they're reading because they have to.

Hahaha. Maybe read lighter books? That could stop the drowsiness.

At least 52 (one a week), but usually more. It highly depends on how many new books I find that I like and so on though. But somewhere around that amount seems reasonable!

about 4 books every month maybe I guess.I have to read a lot for keeping my position at the moment to avoid being fired by boss.It is very hard that reading those books which is about the IT and programming .I feel pain when I have no idea to write the code about some system.

Well this year it seems I've read a lot of books. I can't remember how often I've read book in previous months but this past month I've managed to read a book every two days to three days. I love to read, and I've got many more to read just have a hard time picking out which one I'd like to read next, and some are in a series but I've not gotten the rest of them yet. I think it's normal for you not to read, not everyone likes to read.

I usually read at least 10 books a year, but many years I read over 50 and that is not even counting all the little kids books I read to the kids I take care of. So far this year I have read about 40 books.

I guess that is quite normal. I used to read novels a lot during my university years, enjoying them very much, the stories, writing styles, historical backgrounds, and so on. But, now, I seldom pick up a novel. I don't read even one book in the whole year. My time for reading is spent mostly on magazines related to my work, besides on daily newspapers of course.

Last year I read 91 books. (Oh yes, I actually counted.) This year I'm aiming for one hundred and I'm up to 87 already. I AM indeed a busy person. I go to college full-time and probably spend most of my week up at school doing one homework assignment or another. But I make time to read because I love it so much. I've been in these reading habits since I was a little girl: I always take a book with me wherever I go. To school, to the mall, to the dentist's office... etc. Whenever I get a spare minute or have to wait for awhile, I open up my book and I read as much as I can. I am always reading a book. Once I finish one, I immediately start another. I feel TOTALLY LOST if I don't have a book to read! I also take public transportation, which saves me gas money and gives me time to read more.
