When I was in college, in addition to all the books I had to read for school, I was an avid fiction reader. Even then, if I read a book a week, I felt I was doing pretty well.
Forty-six-year-old Nina Sankovitch of Westport, CT, made it her goal to read book a day while blogging (naturally!) about her activities, in part to share her love of books with others and as a way to get through the pain of her sister's death in 2005. Her rules: the books have to be ones she's never read before, she reads only one book per author, and she posts her reviews the next day. She's a couple weeks away from the end of her self-imposed reading marathon.
How does someone, even a fast reader, have time to read a book a day? It doesn't hurt that the former environmental lawyer appears to be at home most of the day, and she has someone coming to her house to help her with household chores every other day. With all the things you have to do (job, school, cleaning, socializing), how long does it take you to get through a book these days?
