Ever wondered how long it takes to read The Great Gatsby (2.62 hours) compared to Atlas Shrugged (31.22 hours)? If so, you’ll like this infographic by Personal Creations. It’s similar to an infographic that we made a few months ago comparing the word count of A Song of Ice and Fire to other novels. The times are based on a reading rate of 300 words per minute.
