Howmuch free timeyou got?

okay, everyone got the same amounts of hours a day.
Most people have some time taken for sleeping (about 7-8hours a day)
time for eating(about 1 hour a day)
work:8
travel to work:1,5
hygiene/getting dressed: 0,5 - 1,5 hours
leisure & entertainment: 1-3hours
work in the house: 1-2hours
time with family: 1-2 hours

with some variety in between from person to person.

How do you divide your time?

In the poll I put how much time you have per day reading (newspaper, magazine, ebooks, online news/feeds...).
Online browsing,forums or interactive programs excluded

I'm not sure what to put, since I multi-task with audio books.

It completely depends, usually on what I'm doing on the weekend.

I selected more then 4 Hours, as I usually spend at least avcouple of hours everyday catching up on news, new developments etc. and go through a rotating list of websites (think 150 at last count) which I check on a weekly or monthly basis.

So adding that to the hour or two I spend reading on weekdays and 3-4 hours o weekends, it comes to a little over four to five hours on average, with a larger share on weekends, holidays & sick days

If I started counting all the time I spend on mobileread, etc. I'll probably have to increase it by a couple of hours..

I've been a firm believer that there aren't enough hours in a day for years now. As it is, I seem to spend most of my life when I'm not sleeping or at work reading. If it's not textbooks, it's novels, if it isn't one of those, it's online news. My poor husband is afraid if I ever get my hands on an ebook reader that he'll never get it OUT of my hands to do anything else.

The numbers in the poll don't make sense, unless you're only counting Monday-Friday?

work == read, write, read, write, repeat
non-work == read, eat, fun /if she agrees/, sleep /if she does not agree/

total == 10 - 12 hours a day of reading per work day, more on the weekends unless she agrees

Yes,I counted 5 day weeks.
For many it's very hard to predict how their weekends or days off go.

Damn I just finished my 16th book for the month. My New Years goal was to read ten a month.

funny how some people write more than 40hours a week!
That's like you read more than going to work!
(Or perhaps reading IS your work)...
