I soooo wish that I was a speedy reader. I feel like so many people read books faster than me. I look on Goodreads and other blogs and people just seem to be able to get through books so fast! I came across one blog (I can’t remember which one; I’ve stumbled on so many) where the person running it read at least one book per day. At least? Sometimes she reads more than one? How is that even possible? Even if I had the time, I wouldn’t even be capable of reading more than one book in one day…unless I didn’t sleep!
I was looking on my Kobo reader the other day, looking at my stats, and apparently I average 10 hours per book. Granted, some of that time I might not actually be reading (if I leave my Kobo on accidentally or take a break from reading but don’t close the cover or turn it off), but still. Ten hours seems like a rather lengthy average time for a book, doesn’t it?
I know I’m not the slowest reader out there or anything. I do read faster than some. But, I can’t help but envy those who can read fast, who can read an entire book in an afternoon. How amazing would that be? Think of how many more books I could read! How many more books I could scratch off my list of to-reads!
I know that getting faster comes with time. I am already a faster reader than I was before I started blogging. I read more and I read faster. I hope the day comes when I can sit down and devour a book in a mere few hours! Until then…
How about you? Are you a fast reader? A slow reader? Or somewhere in between?
Do you have speed-read envy like I do??
