Follow on Friday (#5)

Morning everyone! Its Follow on Friday time. 

Q: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

A: Donna - I read about 2 - 4 books a week. It completely depends on how busy I am. I usually read paperback, hardback or on my kindle. I've never actually listed to an audio book. I should though, as I heard its really good. 

A: Jessica: -I'm a slow reader. Mostly because I work full time, and the only reading I can really ever get done is on my commute into London. I don't always give myself a lot of reading time at the weekend, so I miss out on that. So really I can read a book a week. Its about a 45 minute journey on the train and then another 20 minutes by bus to the office, so I manage to read about 3 chapters within that hour of travelling time.  Although having said that, I found myself reading the Night Huntress series in less than a week, but mostly because the chapters are short, and they're a quick and easy read. As I don't own a Kindle yet, all my book are in paperback/hardback format. Wow, sorry for that essay!

Should we start a club for non-audio book listeners? I just never have? I figure I won't really pay attention! I'll probably try to read along or something!!

I also do most of my reading when commuting. I think it's a talent being able to block all those annoying sounds and escape to a wonderful book world but at the same time being able to listen for my stop. :)
Have a great weekend,
Erika @ Let's talk about books

I'm the same as Jessica - get all my reading done on my journey into work. I think that's the only reason I can stand the travelling time!

This was a nice book blogger question. My answer will probably embarrass me in comparison with my peers!
