If you’re the type of person who finds yourself on the internet more than in a book, this app we built might help. It uses an algorithm to predict how long it’ll take to read any text, whether it’s a magazine or a children’s book. Besides that, you can also check out the best speed reader applications, Speed Reading Android and Speed Reading IOS.

What’s the estimated reading time for a book of 600 pages?

Although the average reading time varies based on the reader, a book of 600 pages takes an average of 4.59 days to read. To figure out how long it will take you to finish a book, use the following formula:

\text {Reading time (in minutes)} = \text {Number of pages} \times \text {Minutes it takes to read one page} \

The questions this reading time calculator can answer

While reading speed is a useful metric, it’s not the only one you should be aware of. We’re going to break down how your reading speed depends on both your habits and personal preferences.

How much do you read? Reading speed varies based on how much text you have to read each day. If you only read for 10 minutes at a time, your reading speed will be low compared with someone who reads for an hour at a stretch. As we mentioned above, this also applies if there are distractions in the room (i.e., watching Netflix in bed instead of devoting all of your attention to the book). The more focused and uninterrupted attention that can be given to reading materials over long periods of time will result in faster reading speeds overall.

How long do you stay focused during one sitting? Another factor that influences how fast or slow people read is whether they get distracted by other activities while doing so—and whether they come back later once they feel more alert again before continuing where they left off (which would also make them slower).

For example: if someone reads three paragraphs then pauses their book because they need something else done right away such as checking email or getting food from the downstairs refrigerator–or even just taking care of house chores–there’s nothing stopping them from picking up where those paragraphs left off later after completing those tasks first thing upon returning upstairs again. Of course, you could binge-read the entire book, but perhaps sacrificing how much you will understand it and/or enjoy it.

Stories change the reader’s perception of time

The way stories are told, the way they’re written, and the way they’re structured can all have an effect on how long a story feels.

For example, stories that present characters telling their own stories will create different perceptions of time than those that are presented from a third-person perspective or omniscient point of view. Similarly, stories told in the past tense (as opposed to present tense) seem to take place in a slower setting than those written in the present tense.

Stories also change our perception by design. For example, short stories tend to feel shorter than novels but longer than poems; plays tend to feel longer than short stories but shorter than novels; graphic novels tend to feel shorter than plays but longer than short stories, and poetry collections can take anywhere between 30 minutes and several hours depending on how many poems there are in each collection.

How to use the time to read calculator? How long will it take to read this book?

Our reading time calculator works by using how fast you read as a coefficient, in order to calculate how long it will take you to read a book (in minutes). Then, you can also calculate how many days it will take you, based on how many minutes you spend reading the book each day.
