Trivia_quiz1Your Age in Book Years

You know how dogs' ages are different in dog years than in human years? Supposedly, 1 year of human life equals 7 years of dog life. So a 6-year-old dog is really like a 42-year-old human! Well I was wondering if that applies to other things too. . . like those of us who read a lot.

If you read a lot of books, does that make you age differently? Get a pencil and paper, and take this fun (strictly non-scientific) quiz to find out your age in book years.

  • How many books do usually you read per week?
  • Multiply this number by 2.
  • Add 5.
  • Multiply it by 50.
  • If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1762.
    If you haven't, add 1761.
  • Now subtract the 4-digit year that you were born.

The total number you get is your age in book years, but notice the cool part. The first digit of this number is your reading number (how many books you read per week).
The last 2 numbers are YOUR HUMAN AGE!

Cool, right? Leave a Comment telling us your age in book years!

    I’m 414 which is not only a pretty number but also incredibly accurate! For some of the people at the top of the comments, I think they might have forgotten to subtract their birth year because I’m not sure how they read 41/21/70/60 books per week :)

    Guess what STACKS members, I got 310.This is amazing:3 books per week x 2 = 6 + 5 = 11 x 50 = 550 + 1762 = 2312 – 2002 = 310. This is one of the most coolest tricks ever. I’m 70 dog years.
