extremely fast readers who seem to churn through tons of books very

Librarians and book vendors have a slightly lower estimate for the
average number of books read per year.

There are huge swathes of the American population where book reading is
completely unknown. Those sub-groups pull the average number of books
read down considerably.

There is a correlation between the number of books in a student's home,
and their academic performance. There is a secondary correlation between
the number of books the parents of the student read, and the student's
academic performance.
