The Daily Poll

Poll: How many books do you read a month?

Our daily poll is dedicated to World Book Day – we want to know how often you read a book.

IN HONOUR OF world book day, we want to sneak a peek at your reading habits. Are you a bookworm, or do you struggle to get through the back of the cereal packet without your attention straying?

Whether it’s the latest Stieg Larsson, or Howard Jacobson’s The Finkler Question, the collected wisdom of Jeremy Clarkson, or the latest Harry Potter doesn’t matter – we just want to know how often you settle down with a book (or an e-book)?

Poll Results:

2-4 books a month (339)
1 book every 1-2 months (242)
4+ books a month (189)
1 book a year (53)
Can't remember last time I read a book (41)
