It depends. If I really like the book, I usually finish it 1-2 days because I can't stop. Sometimes I read for 13 hours non-stop. If the book is so-so or thick, 3-5 days.

If i'm sooo hooked to the story, I can finish it 2 to 3 days. I even got to finish a book (Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami) in a day. Well, it was not thick anyway.

Now I could barely finish a book due to my busy 'motherhood' schedule, let alone begin reading a new one.

1-2 days, depende kung makapal at interesting yung books..
pero minsan kasi mas gusto ko patagalin ng ilang days bago ko tapusin para lang maalala at ma-internalized talaga yung binasa ko.. ;D

If the book is interesting 1-3 days. Minsan kasi binabagalan ko magbasa at binabalikan ko yung mga pages lalo na pag interesting at nakakakilig yung situation.

Pag boring yung book around 1 month. Sayang naman kung di ko tatapusin. Tyagaan lang.
Sometimes fate has its funny way of turning our world upside down.
But I still believe God knows what's best for all of us.
We might not understand it now,
but eventually we will...in His perfect time.
We just have to believe and have faith.
