I try to read as much as I can in my free time, but between work and my kids I don't have much free time.

I try to read whenever I have time! With university and studying, I rarely have time to read a good book. I miss reading and I usually read fiction and non fiction. :) And of course, Harry Potter!

I read about 1,000 pages a week. (not counting manuals I use for reference and news articles). I find even if I read something that's not instructional or technical, I still get a better grasp of language and communication out of it.

A thousand pages a week is a lot, I wish I had the reading speed and the reading time to read that much. Check out my post called 'A System of Reading' and tell me what you all think about it.

reading is one of my favourite things to do.
i like novels of all kinds, from classic literature to the shipping news.
i also read a lot of books on aromatherapy, herbal medicine, alternative health.
and i love all those motivational books....i try not to OD on those however (it makes for very boring dinner parties) and limit myself to one every couple of months.

I love alternative health books. I have one right now on Hatha Yoga and the benefits it provides for the nervous system. Unfortunately, I just get my books from the local library due to not being able to afford purchasing books often, and I can't really find much in the form of motivational books. Otherwise, I would probably read a good bit of them.

My goal is to read 1 book per week. Usually, I only read about 1 or 2 books per month, though.

Reading is a great way to keep your mind sharp and to keep learning.

I love reading, from religious books to the maddest stories.

i love Carlos Castenedas work, it really has inspired me alot.

also the book of Paulo Coelho's The manual for the warrior of light. filled with many small and smart wise quotes that every warrior needs to have on their shelves
"The way of the Warrior is passion in action, a hurricane at bliss in reaction".

Thanks for the recommendations, Asiddragon. What does Carlos Castenedas write about?

i enjoy reading self improvement books about leadership and dealing with people (goes quite well with being a warrior!)

some of the great books that have been invaluable to me have been:

the magic of thinking big - david schwartz
how to win friends and influence people- dale carnegie
the five love languages - gary chapman

these books are dirt cheap on amazon.com but are priceless in what they teach you

I read quite a lot. Mainly I read autobiographies and novels. I find reading quite useful for relaxation.

Not quite an avid reader, actually I sort of hate reading. Although I am into comic books sort of things.

How Much Do I Read?

Postby Todd » 03 Sep 2011, 20:08

Well, I read about 1 or 2 books a month. Well, I should say it all depends on my mood. I can go through books at lightening speed. My mom is an avid reader and I pick that up from her. Currently, I am reading internet books. But, I really enjoy Self Help books. Wait, I should say that I enjoy an occasional Sandra Brown Book. :D
