I was a reader as a child, and I am a reader still. While on a 5 day trip to Oregon last week, I read 4 novels, a book I will be reviewing soon called Mind Your Own Mortgage, and 4 books of the Bible. That is what I call a treat--time to read, even if it was on the plane or because I couldn't sleep.
But my daughter, Mckenna, who is not yet 9, will have me beat in the next few years. She is incredible! This is the best list we could come up with by looking at our bookshelves, and it's very likely we are missing some.

That's 25 books, with 4 in progress. All of these books are "chapter books," save the Foxtrot Comic Books. Some of them have 250 or more pages, though many are closer to 75-100.
My point is, she is incredible...and she is proving to be quite the challenge for Homeschool. Finding age appropriate, reading level appropriate, challenging books for her is quite the task.
Soon I will post her book list for this coming year. However, now that we have looked over what she read this summer, I realize I need to improve her list for the year! I think there are only about 15 books on it, and that just won't do.
