[color=#000000ost_uid0][quoteost_uid0="Zeke"]"Eighter"... does the average Trek novel take 96 minutes to read?[/quoteost_uid0]
Well, it certainly depends on

    [*]The length of the novel ([iost_uid0]The Great Starship Race[/iost_uid0], which I'm fairly sure I took over an hour and a half to reread yesterday, is just over 300 pages long. The others I glanced at, including [iost_uid0]Here There Be Dragons[/iost_uid0] and [iost_uid0]Infiltrator[/iost_uid0], are right about 275 pages)[*]The content and style of the novel[*]Whether I feel like skimming through or savoring the experience[/list]
    I would guess that it usually takes me at least an hour to read a Trek novel that I haven't read yet. But I have no accurate idea really.

    [quoteost_uid0="Katy Jane"]Book "eighter", clever [/quoteost_uid0]
    Not really. I was going to call it a "fiver", but on scanning down the column it seemed rather too long to be referred to as such. [/colorost_uid0]
