(Y-8) Gargantuan Challenges and the Re-focus of my time reading 1,000,000 pages

Lately I have been bombarded with a lack of mental and physical strength. Nothing to be concern about, but it has affected me quite deeply. I think it’s mainly the normal grind of living in this accelerated times.

Some nights my brain literally shuts down on me, there I’m trying to make head-way with one of my books and suddenly…..puff……gone….

And it reboots around 3 a.m.

This has been going on for quite some time; fortunately it only has affected my progress in this personal challenge.

But it got me thinking; maybe my focus on the whole thing needs new direction. The challenge is “Lost in a Million Pages” not “Lost in a Million Pages for a certain time”. So I think is time to re-hatch the idea that I’ll get this done by my 50th birthday, instead the idea is to get it done. Who knows maybe I can do it before that.

So to proof that I mean business the challenge for the next 3 years stands. That is 130,500 pages. Starting with 52 books for this year, from which I’m working on numbers 14, 15 and 16 (hence the gargantuan part of the title).

For now, besides reading like a mad man, I need to find new things to add to my library.

Because 130,500 pages are quite a mouth-full and my current things to read are far from that number.

Recommendations are welcome

I’ll keep you post it on my progress with the massive hoarding of pages.

Happy Readings
