...to finish a book?

If it's a little, 300-page book, then it would take me about 2 hours if I read it nonstop. With all the :censored: they give at school, it usually takes me half the class to finish the assignment and the other half to continue the book. Usually I finish the book in a day. But if it's a book with many more pages, It may take me 4-5 days to finish it. I read the entire Inheritance Cycle within a week about a month ago. When other people found out, they were amazed, but really, you'd read with your mind and soul absorbed if you've read the Inheritance cycle.

I am currently reading the Hunger Games.

I bought the book on March 1 (Thursday).
Chapter 1 was finished on Tuesday.
Chapter 2 was finished today.

It's not so much that I'm a slow reader when I'm actually reading, it's just that it takes me forever to feel like doing it.

I read pretty fast, when I have time to actually read (between work and other stuff). I recently read Shadows in Flight (part of the Ender series by Orson Scott Card), about 200 pages, in a day.

I get distracted way too easily, i really should read more. But it normally takes me a couple of days to read a book.

I read novels like a boss, so I read books that are like 800 pages in 14 hours.
