Pre-Kindle (the first four months of 2008) I read two books: The Queen's Gambit by Walter Tevis and the biography of Tom Cruise. Post-Kindle, by my rough count (I don't keep a list or spreadsheet) I have read 49 things. I say "things" because they were mostly books, but that number includes a few short stories and the Mitch Albom commencement speech.

I also read the New York Times every day.

I get the Wall Street Journal, and it's so much easier reading it on the Kindle just for that very reason. All the articles are hyperlinked with a short description, so all you do is browse the list and click on the ones you want to read. Back button brings you right back where you left off on the article list.
Yes, that's exactly how I read the New York Times. I love it. I find interesting articles that I never would have stumbled across in the online edition.

How fast I read depends on what kind of book - some that I have make you think as you read them, which extends the time a bit. If it's a book in a series where I'm familiar with the characters already - like the 800 page Harry Potters - I can polish it off in 8 hours or so.
While I could read HP that fast, I actually read them slowly to try to stretch them out and make them last. If I am enjoying a book, I like to savor it. That doesn't always work, though. Sometimes I rush through to find out what happens.
