Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments Wow...you are definitely a power reader!


message 8: by Kasia (last edited May 11, 2009 04:25AM) (new)

Kasia Oh wow! Do you ever have problems finding stuff to read? At 60 books a month, it must be a challenge at times... I know it would have been, for me...


message 9: by colleen (new)

colleen (colleenfl) | 458 comments Yeah, it can be tough finding new stuff to read. I have a few thousand books but they are mostly in storage and I've read most of them multiple times. Almost all of the books I read now come from the library. My county does not have a very big library system and lately has made lots of cuts. My monthly average of books read has been declining. Last year I averaged about 73 books a month and the year before was about 80 books a month. When all else fails, I reread.
