Confetti and drinks are in order.
I am glad to say that the total projected for this year, 41,665 total pages, has been achieved.
My current total is 42, 975 pages, and with exactly one month left on this year of reading I plan to keep piling on to my total.
The first plan was to try to achieve 50,000 pages, but right now it seems a bit far fetched, so my aim is to leave my next year with under 40,000 pages to read, just 335 pages to go.
If I achieve this numbers, I would have read the 130,500 pages that was my goal for this three years of my project, so this upcoming year is crucial to get back on track, it will not be an easy task, for this year will be a short one, just 236 days, this is to coincide each end of the year of reading with my birthday, which is consequently the end date of my project.
My overall total now sits at 323,173 pages, and I have gained some ground on my quest to achieve the first 500,000 pages and consequently my ultimate goal of 1,000,000 pages.
Now, according to my projections, and if I keep up my pace, the first 500,000 pages will be achieved by March 25, 2020, and 1,000,000 pages by September 10, 2045.
By this date I will be 64 years, 3 months and 5 days old, way more that my initial goal of 50 years old.
The good news is that I slowly have gained ground, last time I checked I was 5231 days behind , now, I am 5211.
Slowly but surely.
For now, I am off to read.
