Alphabets, etc.

I'm curious....

How many different alphabets (also including abjads/syllabaries/etc. but excluding character-based writing such as kanji) can you read? (just be able to read out phonetically, regardless of whether or not you know what the words themselves mean)

How long did it take you to learn them?

Are you currently learning any new ones?

What would you consider to be the easiest alphabet? Hardest?

(Though if you do also read kanji/hanzi/etc., feel free also to mention how much you know/how long it took you to learn, but I'm primarily interested in how long it takes people to learn alphabets/abjads/etc.).
