Distribution to model time between web page accesses

I have a formula to get an average time that an average user spends reading a web page before going to the next one, that takes as input the number of words on the page. I want to use this in conjunction with a probability distribution to try to accurately model an 'average user' that is not exactly average; ie. a real user. Is a random exponential distribution appropriate to use in this context? If not, what are the alternatives and their benefits?

Thank you

oneamp, it sounds an interesting approach. You'd be likely to get more specific suggestions if you asked on one of the maths sub-forums. This is sure to be something that others have spent time on.

Good luck.
