Wow, I can't even imagine a number, I have been reading since I started school, would always go to the library I average a book every week or two. Well a ruff estimate would be about 750 books that I have read in my lifetime so far, and counting.

Got any good chemistry or physics books in your list? Any websites (with information) related to the two subjects I have mentioned; or just science in general?

I honestly have no clue. I have loved reading since I was a little girl. I still read every night for the most part. I think I will keep track of how many books I read this year.

Wow. This is a great question but one I don't know if I can answer. I've read so many books! I read when I was a child. I read when I was a teenager. I read as an adult. I'm only 28 but I know that I've read quite a few. I wish I knew though, that'd be interesting to know. I'd read even more then the several I already do if I had more time.

Too many to count... I used to read a book a day for a couple of years at least, so my total would probably be in the 10000s or so.

Thats a hard question to answer...I have been a book lover from the day I learned to read. My mother use to tell me I was going to go blind I read so much. Even when I had a full-time job and 6 kids to raise I still found time to read. I now read about 4 books or more a week. I like Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Mary Higgens Clark, John Saul, John Grisham, well you get the idea...any book by any known author. So I would say up in the thousands...and still reading.

i have been reading books since i was 5 years old,a guess would have to be 4000 to 5000,i used to read at least 5 books a week but that was because we didnt have a tv most of the time when i was growing up.i was reading agatha christie when i was 10 years old.i found a bunch in the attic that my grandmother had saved so i got hooked on those at a young age so i still read a least 3 a week now and will always love to read

I am not a book reader, I just can't get into it, I would rather be on the internet, I often think how good it is for people to be able to get so involved in books.

OH! my...thousands. My family laughs when I say...All done this one! I usually have a book in several rooms of the house and as I spend time in that room I grab the book. I usually read 2-3 books a week. I always thought it would have been cool to start writing down titles when I was younger and then I could see what I have read. Reading is awesome! I thank my Mom for passing that on to me, the love of books & reading. I always ask for books for special occasions. They are my passion. Doesn't matter what kind usually, although I do have my favorites (Yeah! Nora Roberts). Heck, I still read the cereal boxes! LOL
