For me:  It's however long it takes me to finish the book.  My answer would be based on books per week and not hours per day.  I average 2-4 books per week.  Much of it depends on the # of appointments I have.

Hoping to get back to 2 books a week or so. :)

Ugh, I am right there with you Sugar! I have my Kindle by my side all the time, but work is the killer. We are required to put in at least an extra 10 hours of OT since...um, I think, January, it's been so long. I try to keep up during the weekends (that is if we aren't on mandatory weekend 8 hour work day). I miss my reading time!

A couple of hours a day at least.  I'm working on a couple of wedding gifts, so that's taking up my reading time.  Work should settle down after this week, and I should get a lot more reading time in.

Probably a couple of hours for me too. It's hard to tell, because there are so many odd times when I just pick up a book or my kindle for a few minutes here and there.

I used to read 2 - 3 hours a day, but being on KindleBoards has shortened that time. I usually read 2 to 3 books a week.

Maybe more on weekends, maybe less.
That's pretty close to what I read. I've given up on most of my "favorite" TV shows. Down to NCIS, Numbers and Big Bang Theory. This summer I'll read even more.

Right now I'm only getting an hour or so a day of pleasure reading in, but when I'm not in the middle of working I can lose 6-7 hours a day reading for the first few days of YAY I CAN HAVE FUN, then I think I settle into 3 hours or so...at some point I realize there's someone else in the house I need to pay some attention to ;)

I usually spend about an hour a day pleasure reading, and it's usually just before bed. On weekends I read quite a bit more.

Hmm, yep, daily average would vary a lot.  I read a minimum of 2 hours a day, and that's a day I'm really busy.  On a day I actually have time to enjoy myself, I can easily hit 8+ hours.  Of course, we don't own a television, which helps.  :D

I usually only get in an hour a day.

I'm envious of everyone's 4-5 hour times.  I must not manage my time very well  :( .

Well Kim, don't be too jealous.
I spend 1hour+ commuting on public transportation in the morning - read.
I spend 1 hour+ commuting on public transportation in the evening - read.
I read during my lunch hour.
And I read while giving my Dear Wife a back rub - at least 30 minutes.
Add in the odd 10 minute read here and there and you have 4 hours.
But 2 hours of that is time that I would choose to do something else if I could.

I'm still suffering from reading withdrawls.  I was reading on average 8 hours a day while on vacation.  Now I'm back to 2 or 3 and I have a new DTB book to read.

Nah, probably just circumstance. For instance, not only am I retired but I have a neuro problem which requires me to lie down much of the time. Not that there aren't other things to do lying down (typing on KB, say) but reading is a big part of it.

I definately read more during the week than the weekends. Those I tend to be busy being outside and hanging with friends and stuff. During the week I ready 1 hour for lunch and usually 2-3 hours during work  ::) and in the evenings. Usually get in about 3 books a week, sometimes 4.

Anywhere from 2 - 6 hours a day, depending on how much time I spend on the boards  :-\
