I find that if I really enjoy the book I will spend a lot more time reading it and finish it faster. Where if it is a slow book that I don't like as much I will only read a few pages before putting it down. I heard a person say the other day that they liked audiobooks because they knew it was going to take them this amount of hours to finish the book. I will talk about my experience with audiobooks in another post.
On Average a long book 500 to 600 pages will take me anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. A medium book 300 to 400 pages will take me to 5 to 7 days depending on how much time I have. A short book will usually take me two days.
I also have noticed that if I have school off I have a lot more time to read so I will finish more books over that period of time. My English teacher thinks I'm a speed reader because I tell her about the many books I read, but if I was to catergorize myself I would say that I'm average. I'm not a slow reader by any means, but I'm not incredibly fast either.
I think at whatever rate you finished the book is the rate you finished the book. To me it doesn't matter how long it took to read a book. What matters to me is the story and how much I enjoyed the book. Of course for some books such as books to movies I do set a timeline for myself when I need to finish the book so I will have it finished at least a few days before I see the movie.
What do you think? Do you set a timeline for how fast you finish books? What is your reading pace? Does it matter to you if you don't finish the book in a pacific amount of time?
Thanks for reading
