I was watching Jeopardy! tonight, and one of the contestants reads a lot and keeps track of the books she reads. She has read 750 books since 1988. That averages out to a little more than 3 books a month. I guess that’s a lot; it’s certainly more than I read at this point. But it didn’t seem like an amount to brag about. I think there’s a lot of avid readers who probably read more than that.
So my question to you is: How many books have you read in the past 20 years? If you’re not sure, can you estimate?
