Finding Time to Read

An average reader can read 300 wpm so…

15 minutes a day=4500 words

7 days a week=31, 500 words

52 weeks a year= 1,512,000 words a year


The average book=75,000 words so…

We can read an average of 20 books a year in 15 minutes a day

That is over 1000 books in our lifetime just with 15 minutes
