The RTB post from the other day got me thinking about how many books I've read over the years. Based on the logic we read 3000 in our lifetime I think I'm well into my 2nd lifetime and expect to reach three or four. I've been reading addict for 25 years, since I've only been keeping track of them for the last two I'm going to take a guess, 200 books a year for 25 years--that's 5000 books. I know there are years I've read more and years I've read less, but the last 2 years are a good indicator as to how much I do read.

I read the same post and wondered how many books I've read too. I didn't do a calculation like you did, so I'm in awe of your numbers. I've also been reading forever, but 25 years ago I was probably in the 50 a year club. The last five years more like 250 a year. So who knows where it will end up. Fun to think about though.

Holy cow! I'll have to go and read the post because now I don't even think I can call myself a reader. Man, I just can't catch a break ;)
