How many books have you read during lockdown?
I never really had a lot of time to read until this lockdown started. But since the lockdown, I’ve read: All Quiet on the Western Front, The Black Swan, Antifragile, The (Mis)Behavior of Markets, Eusebius’s Church History, and book 1 of The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward 1.

Currently working on The Life and Times of William Howard Taft and the rest of the History of English Law

Pretty much the same.

I average around 24-30/year.

While I did have more down time, I still had other projects that required my attention.

My reading consumption has taken a hit due to our library being shut down.

This made the audio books available through the libby app with our library become a rare commodity as everyone was lining up to check those out.

Only 5, but one of them was 900 pages.

It's better than television without sports.

Since the beginning of March about 35-40 books I'd say.

Not sure for just lockdown, but I'm at 23 books and at 12k+ words for the year. Been a lot of fun getting through stuff.

Close to 50 is my guess. Library is finally open and doing contactless pick up.

I've read five so far. The first three Dark Tower books, Doctor Sleep, and The Stand uncut edition (1152 page behemoth). Also jumping back into the Lonesome Dove series, but Stephen King feels right for the current times.
