How much reading do you do a week?
I love to read. So I read as much as I can on a weekly basis. Yet it varies from week to week how much time.
I like to read, too. However it varies, I guess with my mood. I like historical fiction as well as theology, and right now, I have one of each going, and two others in the wings.
Actually way more than 11 online, however books are another subject - none - I can't stand to read books though I do for study etc. if needed.
Online doesn't bother me a bit, I suspect it is due to the shortness of online stuff, I have an attention thing or lack there of.
If you have a commute, try the books on tape/CD from the library. I have an hour each way in my commute and then I always have another book handy for waiting in lines and such.
Have some audio books on the puter but haven't tried them.
Don't commute, just compute
Wife uses ebooks on her pocket computer a lot and really enjoys them.
I'd be curious to see if you would get similar results in a different forum here on the BB.
Without a doubt, people who visit the Book forum are avid readers!
The problem I have is that I speed read. I read extremly quickly, so my book budget costs are extremly high... which is hard when your broke.
There are some free ebooks online if you have a mind to read on the computer or a pocket computer.

http://www.msreaderbooks.com (christian stuff)
http://www.mobipocket.com has cheaper books.
There are also a number of library cdroms fairly cheap if you don't mind older public domain books.
I love to read, but mostly if I'm on a holiday break. I find myself being able to immerse myself in the reading of a book if I can do it all at once (reading the book from beginning to end). That's why I have to usually wait till a holiday break, to fully enjoy the read.
It is bizarre! I go to the library and find not very many books that I am interested in, yet when I call into Borders Bookstore I want the whole shop!
Reading on the computer for too long is really difficult, it causes really bad eye strain.
