Some people can sit down and finish a book in four hours and some take days, weeks or even months to finish a book. On average, how long does it take you to finish a book?

It depends. I go through phases of reading books. I can read a book in a few hours if I'm committed, other times a few days or for my current book it's taking me a few months because I keep forgetting about it.

Normally 2-3 days. Depend on homework, at most a week.

Depends on the book.

I could read The Very Hungry Caterpillar in about a minute.
Whereas I've never finished some of my uni textbooks, and never intend to, so that's an infinite duration.

I don't know, may be I'm just really committed. But I think I read quite fast.

Depends how into it I am. The quickest I've ever read a full-length novel was about two hours. Normally I read slower than that though, so it takes maybe two or three days.

It varies a lot. Sometimes I can finish multiple books in a day and other times it takes me weeks or even months to actually finish a book. I often have several on the go admittedly.

It would take weeks or months for me, depending on how interesting the book was.
