    Default How long does it take you to read all 7/8 books?

    Some people have re-read this books many times. I read the original 7 all in one go and it took me at least 6 months - I'm guessing others read a bit quicker (or more precisely spend longer reading each day).

    How long did it take you?
    How many hours per day?
    Do you include any additional stories in your DT re-read such as Little Sisters or Salem's Lot?

    Never really thought about the length of time it took on each re read- It's been several times. The last was using the audiobooks and might have been less than a month.

    The times on the audiobooks are thus:
    Gunslinger- 6 hours
    Drawing fo the Three- 8
    Wastelands-18
    Wizards and glass- 27
    The Wind Through the Keyhole- 10
    Song of S. - 14
    Wolves - 26
    DT- 29

    It took me around 20 years. But that was SKs fault, not mine.

    Ditto. 24 years for me. For the same reason.

    I read all 7 back to back to back... took about 5-6 months.

    I read the seven in short order considering I'm the opposite of a speed reader, but I can't say how many months it took. Even if I knew I think the realization would be unreal. Looking back, the series seemed to suspend time for me.

    The first time it took over 20 years... But I once read all 7 in 3 weeks. I was laid up after ankle surgery and had lots of time. Hours and hours of time. King kept me sane.
