Bookshelves in the Oval Office

Does anyone really believe that the President reads 87 books per year? I might have read that many in 2005 (I didn't count re-reads for purposes of the challenge), but during that year I was a student, an unemployed wastrel studying for the bar exam, and a government employee in a small city with little in the way of other entertainments. Reading that many books takes time! Presidents should not have time-consuming hobbies. It's not as bad as being obsessed with sports, but still.

How many books do you actually read? Skimming and reading only the good parts doesn't count (sorry, Tyler).
