Personal Creations has created an infographic called, “How Long Does It Take to Read Popular Books?” which explores how long it takes to read different titles.
According to the graphic, it takes an average of 32.63 hours to read Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace and 60.23 hours to read the entire Harry Potter series of books. While titles like Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie and Erich Segal’s Love Story can be read in under two hours.
Here is more about how they calculated reading time:
We took some of the most popular books of all time and estimated how long it would take the average reader to finish by multiplying word count by the average person’s reading speed, 300 words per minute, which will give you an approximate gauge of how long it will take any of the following great books.
