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!

in book years i am 1,223

OMG im 4111 AWESOME

i am 1,200,567

i am 212 in book years. Something me and my Mom figured out is that if you don’t read anybooks you are the same age as you are in human years.

I’m 12 and I got 312! I read about 3 books per week, but it’s probably because I read long books and have like no time to read!

i got 311

Wow it actually worked. I got 212. I read about 2 books per week and I’m 12

509!!!!!!!!

koolio!im 410
