Reading 125 books a year?! This guy does

Have you ever tried to read a book every day for a year? One author interviewed by NPR has tried.

Yesterday NPR Books posted an interview with an author who reads 125 books or more a year! I’ve tried for the past 5 years or so to get to 50, so 125 seems almost impossible to me. But author Joe Queenan has read more than 250 in a year (where he tried to read one every day, but lost steam.) Wowza.

The interview is really interesting, however there’s some things he said that ruffled my feathers a little, especially when he says why he thinks people read and how much he thinks the average person reads in  a year.

Give the interview a listen and let me know what you think of Queenan’s thoughts and reading habits. Are any similar to your own?

  1. With no other jobs in the offing at the moment and only a part time job, I crave something to further my mind so I set myself a challenge for a year. I like to improve myself and get lost in words at the same time.
