By the Book

Now, as you probably know read a lot (usually on average of a couple of books a week, though I've been slacking off lately). I got an e-mail from a fellow BookCrosser with this interesting information:

An average reader can read 300 words a minute. If a reader reads 15 minutes a day, she can read 4500 words a day or 1 1/2 million words in a year. The average book has 75,000 words. So if a person reads 15 minutes a day, she can read 20 books in a year.

So, even if you don't think you have enough time to read, just a few minutes a day will get you through twenty books in a year.
