Follow Friday: Reading Habits

Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme intended to connect the book blogging community. To join the blogging fun or find other blogs who participated in the meme, check out Parajunkee!

Happy Friday! Before I jump into today’s Follow Friday question, I wanted to address my Google Friend Connect button. For some reason, the app is down on hundreds of blogs, and I haven’t heard anything about when it might be back up again! Hopefully this issue will be fixed soon!

If you’re a new reader, you can still follow my blog by manually adding the blog URL into your reader. On Google Reader, it’s the “Add a subscription button.” Otherwise, you can follow via email (on my right sidebar). Technology is a double-edged sword. :/

Book I'm currently reading

Today’s FF Question:

How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

Unlike most book bloggers out there, I feel like I read pretty slowly. This is not because I’m not a fast reader but mainly because my free time outside of work gets used up quickly. Excuses, excuses, I know. But it’s true. 🙂

Getting down to the numbers- I probably read 1 to 1 and a half books a week. And, I mostly read on my cutely accessorized Kindle. I still love reading physical books, but there are too many great deals on the Kindle that I can’t pass up!

How many books do you read a week and what formats do you read them in?

About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.
  • Well, I’m glad to meet another blogger that’s a slower reader. I have a hard time keeping up with all the others out here. I’m lucky if I read a book a week. Although, it seems lately I’ve been on a roll. But, with working full time, a 12 yr old son, and other things in life happening its hard to get through a lot of books. 🙂 So my poor shelves pay the price of the weight waiting for me to read the books. Yep, I’m an old style one, I like my print books. I haven’t got an ereader yet as I just can’t seem to break from paper. lol. But I guess some day I’ll have to.

    I’m glad we’re in the same boat too! It is a serious balancing act doing all of the things we do AND reading 400 to 600 page books! And, I don’t even have kids yet! 🙂

    I highly recommend making the switch to digital. I still love my paperbacks too, but the portability and cost-cutting features of eReaders are pretty amazing!

  • I believe Im a very slow reader…unless its something that catches my interest from page one. But I get yelled at because i can start 3 books in one day and I place books in places that I visit the most and when I go to those places I am bound to pick up the book. I normally read paper back or hard cover which ever I get from the library. I dont buy books unless I know I really like them and will be reading again. Twilight, and the harry potter series and the sookie stackhouse books line my bookcase. Really looking into the eReader…will save on gas going back and forth to the library 🙂 have a great weekend 🙂

  • Hey

    I think time is the main factor with how many books you can read (or afford to read).

    I really want a kindle. I think i am the only person who doesn’t have one.
