I am a reader.
My goal before I got a job was to read 52 new books a year. I’ve toned it down to 40 new books a year since I went back to work.
I know this is a lot of books but I usually do it. I read once that only 56.6% of Americans read FOUR or more books a year. That is tragic! I guess you could say I’m single- handedly trying to bring the average up. These figures are down from 10 years ago (this study was done in 2005). It used to be 60%. We are fast becoming an illiterate society. Very sad.
In 2012 I received the suggestion to re-read a book I loved over again, digesting it slowly, really getting to know it well. I think I might try that!
6 to 15 books 31%
More than 15 books 27%
