Well there are different factors to be taken into account:

1) How busy your real life is at the time
2) Are you on vacation/ weekend or in your weekday routine
3) Is it an easy read without much challenging vocab, technical explanations, poetic/ prose descriptions or vice versa
4) Is it a new world with new characters and cultures or are you simply slipping back into a familiar world with familiar characters

But I can easily read 100 pages an hour if my plate is clear, and I am comfortable with the set up of the story ....

There's some fuss happening today because the Education secretary apparently said that secondary school children should read 50 books a year...I'm 22 so far from being a school kid, but at first I thought ok, I'd probably struggle to read 50 books a year but then I counted up and I've read 22 books already this year, none shorter than 300 pages and the vast majority over 500. I will admit though that I wasn't working January or February so I would probably have read less were I much busier.
I think that's roughly a book every three days?

For me it all depends on how long the book is, I on average read 350 pages a week. So if the book is that length I will read it in a week. Name of the Wind and 'Salem's Lot took me two weeks because of their length. This is not including the amount I read for university :) That's just what I read for entertainment in a week :)

Depends on the length of the book. Shorter fantasies, between one and a half to two and a half hours. Books like the Wheel of Time, maybe four? The Crippled God I read over two days, but I was very busy at the time.
