I was at the pool one day, and my husband was talking to the parents of a child, our daughter was playing with. The lady said she was heading back to read her book, and then boasted, "That'll be the first book finished!" and beamed from ear to ear. It was nearly the end of our week long holiday, but it was the end of her first week of a 2 week holiday. My husband then told her that I was just finishing my 4th book, and she became a little irritated, and I (not involved in the conversation), had a little giggle to myself. I am quite a fast reader, and my books were quite long - well 3 of them were. My daughter had begged me to read her book, which I did in a couple of hours, so that one didn't really count. It was quite good actually. In fact, even she managed 2 books while we were away, and she isn't a great reader, I have just hit on books she really likes recently. I did have more books with me, incase I needed more, and I didn't think 4 was a lot. I did do all the other normal holiday things like swimming, eating out, visiting some touristy places etc. My husband however thinks 4 books is a lot to read in a year, never mind a week, lol! But now I am wondering if I was being incredibly lazy by spending time, reading 4 books or is that fairly normal?
