http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35261648 I read the above article on BBC news and I was struck by the fact that the journalist seemed to think this worthy of mention: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg gets through a book a fortnight. A book a fortnight is hardly a spectacular accomplishment, is it? I know a lot depends on the type of book being read. I can read a Terry Pratchett in a day or two, but a (popular) science book, even dumbed down to my level, could take a week or so if I hope to understand it fully. But, how many, and what type of, books do you read?
