I'm moving rather quickly through Clash of Kings, though, so I'll be on to Storm of Swords fairly soon. I have off today, the weekend, and monday, so I plan on getting through 100 pages per day until I head back to school, and I'm already on like page 500 (my edition has around 1000 pages).
Well, how many pages you can read per hour?

I don't know, probably around thirty to forty, depending on how much I'm into the chapter.

I read 180 pages yesterday.

So many factors . What kind of spacing do you normally have in your books? Or how big are the letters?

100-200 pages per day <3 .

I don't really know that info. It doesn't look different than any other book I've read, except for the dimensions of the page (it's like 5 by 8, which isn't too common, methinks).

It tooked me the whole evening to finish the Hegel's second page. The most sad part of it I didn't understand anything.
