I know, I know... I said I'd lay off the meme's, but for a dozen reasons (including the fact that I need to wake DH in fifteen minutes) I'm doing this one. At least it's about books!
Booking Through ThursdayAnyone care to join me?
How many books would you say you read in an average month?
Between us, DD and I currently have have 103 books checked out from the library. We probably split that pretty closely in half, and I'll most likely read them all. I get them for four weeks (a homeschooling perk!), so I'll estimate that I read somewhere between 30 - 50 books a month. Yes. Really. And my DD reads more than I do. Reading a lot, and reading quickly, runs in the family. My mom reads faster than I do.
In a year?
I didn't know this was going to be a math problem! Okay... if you're driving with me and have 30 books in your lap and we're traveling at 60 mph and the library is 10 miles away, how long will it take us to drive to and from the library two times a week?
Wait! That's not the right word problem...let's try again.
Okay, if you read 30 books a month (I'll use the low end of the scale) and there are 12 months in the year, how many books do you read a year? Yes, Virginia, that would be approximately (3x12=36, put that zero back.... ) THREE HUNDRED SIXTY!
Over the last five years?
Wow. That's a lot.
The last 10?
3600 -- geez. I need to get a life.
