Yesterday I almost put down Jerusalem and leave it for another time.
It’s messing with my mind, in a good way.
The book is so rich and deeply layered, that is no secret coming from Mr. Moore’s pen.
But I decided to push through and finish it before October 13.
That is when (Y-10) begins and epicness ensues.
For year ten, the total of pages to read will be determined by how (Y-9) ends in total pages, but I’m looking forward to about 90,000 + pages. A gargantuan task.
With this in mind, I thought about how many books and pages should I read for the 10th anniversary of my crazy project. Hence, the title of this post, seven times seven.
Using that idea, which has been rattling around my mind for no apparent reason, I came with the number of books for the year: 7 x 7 = 49 books, and, in order to consider (Y-10) a productive year I should at least read 7 x 7,777 = 54,439 pages.
For now, I’ll spend some long night trying to rack up as many pages as I can and keep searching for epic material to read next year.
