I set my reading goal depending on my weekly Schedule. I have different time slots allocated for reading for each day of the week depending on the activities of that particular day.
My reading slots are usually between 30 minutes and 4 hours. Because I get to study on many other subject matters, I don't spend all four hours reading the same book. I read some for just 30 minutes, others for an hour and others for two, depending what I consider to be of greater priority for the day

Four or five hours a day, I think, though it's not always books. I've been sick lately, though, so it's probably less than that. I wish it was more.

I spend the major portion of my time each day reading.

I try to read at least 1 hour everyday but it really depends on my mood. Sometimes I decide not to read at all. There's days when I read more than 2 hours. It also depends on the book I'm reading. When I'm reading a very interesting book, I try to devote even more time to it.

Usually, about an hour. Mostly, it's at night when I can't sleep. I read for a while, then start to feel sleepy again and rest some more.
