usually it only takes 1 day or 2 to read an good book. it really depends on the time I have pag sobrang busy I can only read 2 books in a week.

usually 1-2 books per week. depende sa mood ko.
I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can't be helped.

Depends sa book. If tagalog pocketbooks, 1-2 hours lang. If Fiction Novels usually 1-3 days (depende rin kung interesting yung plot). If non-fiction like self-help books, etc. months usually ang inaabot (di kasi ako mahilig dito).

It took me 3 loooooonnng years to finish Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. 2,000 plus pages kasi tapos e-book pa. Masyadong masakit sa mata basahin ng tuluy-tuloy.

Depends how interested I am on the story. Some would take me 1 day to finish, others naman around 1 week especially pag busy ako. Some would take months when they are dead boring.

Harry potter books usually 1 hour straight per book
for twilight about 1.30 hours

Kaya whenever I would ask my friends and relatives to buy me books for gifts.. They would say sayang lang book sakin manghiram na lang daw ako kasi.. 1 hour lang tapos ko na.. hehe

wow question lang naabsorb mo ba lahat ng characters or lahat ng mga nangayyare? galing mo naman! kasi ako kelangan ninamnam ko lahat ng words kaya bagal ko e hehe.. para lahat ng events alam ko ... i tried reading fast nahilo ako di ko maintindihan haha slow learner kasi ako e haha

pag maninipis lang e.g. Mills&Boon - 1.5 to 2 hours

pag around 300++ pages depende sa ganda ng story at sa oras na pwedeng magbasa probably around 5 to 6 hours

pag super haba, like 700++ pages to a thousand probably 2 days

if super ganda ng book, at wala naman akong work, then it will only take me a few hours.   :)

depends on the book when i read harry potter series and twilight saga hindi ata umabot ng 1week lahat ng book mostly 3-5 days. i find it hard to put it down its like when your watching a movie that you need to pause but you don't want to kasi malapit ka na sa climax or nasa good part kang book i feel just like that when am reading a good book
It's not enough that you accept me for what I am. You also have to accept me for what I'm not.

If it interests me, I can finish it in one sitting. If it doesn't, it will take days, even months and years even. That reminds me, I haven't finish this book that a friend gave me. Haha. Average would be 3 days. ;)

unmotivated -- years. =)
