How long does it take to get good at sight-reading music?

This is a very individual matter. It depends on your age and experience, the kind of music you are talking about (you aren't going to be sight-reading Rachmaninov Preludes in a week), the amount of time you put in, and even what kind of pressue you're under to sight-read. Sometimes even very good pianists aren't particularly good at sight-reading. Just keep playing the music you like, and get your hands on as much of it as you can. Your sight-reading skills could keep improving over many years.
