# How many pages should a third grader read in 30 minutes?

So let's up the time to 30 minutes: The total number of words is 4200 when 140 words per minute is multiplied by 30 words per minute. 4200 words read divided by 200 words each page is 21 pages (a bit more reasonable amount for an assignment and activity).

## How long does it take to read a 10-K?

Reading Time Calculated by Word Counts

Word CountSlow (125 wpm)Average (300 wpm)
5,000 words40 minutes16.7 minutes
7,500 words60 minutes25.0 minutes
10,000 words1.3 hours33.3 minutes
20,000 words2.7 hours1.1 hours

There are 219 words every minute. So if you read at a rate of 100 words per hour you will finish a page of text in just under nine hours.

A typical adult reader reads at a rate of 250-300 words per minute so a young adult would need to increase their reading speed by a factor of four to five to have a chance of finishing a book within a reasonable time.

However, there are some very fast readers who can read 450-500 words per minute so they could possibly finish a book in less than three hours. But since the average length of a novel is 120-150 pages long it would be difficult for them to cover enough text in that time.

So the simple answer is that even a young adult would need to increase their reading speed by a significant amount to be able to read at the rate of a normal adult reader.
