I read it every day for approx 3-4 hours. In between reading I lock the buttons (i.e. leave it on but push the power button to lock the keypad and avoide accidental page turns, etc.) - I usually get to 5-7 days before I go from 4 bars (full) to 3 bars. Then usually another 3-4 days to go to 2 bars. I think about charging at this time, so usually by the time I get around to pluggin it in (can be 1-3 days later) it's on 2 or 1 bars when I charge it (~8-11 days minimum).

Truth is the bar display is kind of flaky - after some days it reads 3 then jumps back to 4 for a while, then 3 again - I guess it can't decide. Eventually it stays at 3 then does the same for the transition from 3 to 2. At least it has never suddenly gone from 3 to 1 or anything like that!

I'm going to leave mine unplugged now and see how long it takes to go down with normal reading, etc. then update this post.
