My deepest sympathies with you for your kitties. I hope they'll recover (if it's something one can recover from).

I find that my reading speed depends a lot on content. I tend to be very slow with writers that put a lot of thought into each word. Shakespeare, Waugh, Flaubert, and even Tolkien, on the other hand, I can breeze through pulp and detective fiction that I love to unwind to.

My reading speed is nowhere near ‘books per week’. I still work full time so I get to read a chapter or two in the morning, then after work. In the evening I usually watch something on TV or a movie with my wife. I do long sessions on the weekend, except when golf, shopping, or work around the house gets in the way. So I’m more of the 2-3 books a month category, except for like now I’m in a trilogy omnibus edition which I count as one book.

I'd say that reading (speed and quantity), like anything else in nature, is not uniform.

Sometimes reading is broken by bouts of thinking (I like to pause after books I particularly like and want to remember well - maybe start re-reading, maybe just muse, but definitely not start a new book until at least next day/week).

Sometimes one is just not in the mood
