Follow My Book Blog Friday #2

 Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.

Q. How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

I read on average 2 books a week, which seems like a paltry amount compared to other bloggers. I'm seriously in awe when I hear about people reading a book a day or 4 books in a weekend and craziness like that. I wish that could be me, so I could get through my TBR pile, but I think I'd worry that I wasn't really 'taking in' a book if I whizzed through it too quickly. I have enough trouble remembering the books I've read; if the number doubled or quadrupled, I think my brain might just give up completely. 

I only ever read paperbacks but I do want to start listening to audio books - I think it would be a cool way to re-read books, which I basically never do these days. And I want an electronic reader badly but can't afford one as yet!


  1. This was a nice book blogger question. My answer will probably embarrass me in comparison with my peers!

  3. Hey there,
    It is great to meet another blogger who reads about 2 a week. I agree w/you for sure. I love giving every book time to sink in and paying attention while I'm reading. I don't like to rush through either b/c I'm always afraid I'll miss something spectacular :)

  5. Hi T.G. Thanks for stopping past my blog.

    I also read about 2-3 books a week and I'm happy with that. As you and ninja girl have pointed out - I would probably feel like I wasn't doing the books justice if I read much faster. There is, of course, the occasional book that I just can't put down and I may finish it in a day. But we're talking averages here. :)
