It takes me about 2 hours to read three volumes (600 Pages) of manga. That's assuming that every chapter is around 20 pages.

It all depends on how much content is in the manga and how many pages there are. Though I have never timed myself I would put it around about an hour a volume due to being a slow reader.

Well there are varying degrees of whats happening that can change whats going on... if I have anything to do... what type of series it is... digital vs book in my hand...

I'd say on average 1 volume is roughly around one hour.

Depends. I go through shounen like water because it's mostly battle scenes. But something like a romance with more dialogue and detail takes me longer. For example, a Blue Exorcist chapter (roughly 30-40 pages) will take me 5-10 minutes. However, a chapter of Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, same length, will take me 15 minutes or so. And a short-ass chapter of Magi takes me 3-5 minutes.

There are times I get slower on reading when I think too much that Japanese reads from right to left.

I mean to say like for fighting, such as boxing or karate, the trajectory of a thrown kick or punches usually starts on the right. Or there are more kicks or punches being thrown from the right.

Even if the manga is being read right to left, thrown kicks or punches should initiate from the left side.

And, if it does, it's either just a "Sunday" punch / finishing blow.

About an hour. I read slow not because that's my reading level I just like to take my time so I don't miss anything that could be funny or important.

30 - 45 mins each chapter because I like looking at the artwork (Basically animating the artwork in my head) as I read the text. Makes for a much more fun and enjoyable read. I also don't miss anything.

If it's just a slice of life manga, depending on how funny it is it would take much less time to read a chapter.

This is of course assuming the chapters are 20 - 40 pages long

It used to take me a little less than an hour to finish a volume of manga, but now I find a volume can last me a couple days... guess that's since I have work and all now, I don't sit down and read a bunch of manga at once anymore. Part of that might also be the "savoring it" part mentioned earlier in this thread. I'm way more picky about which manga I read than I used to be.

Less than an hour per volume for actual reading time sounds about average, though.

I read pictures slower than I read words .-. manga takes me 1-3 hours depending on what it is. Maybe I take too much time to imitate the sound effects and what not

About 30-45 minutes, if it's a good one, it's hard to stop reading them sometimes! Longer for the omnibus ones obviously.
