Numbers: May 7,2021

My three-week long Star Wars reading marathon is in full swing, and its paying off with some amazing dividets, more than 800 pages in only 3 days, last week I didn’t update, because there was nothing to update.

That being said let me update you on my progress for these two weeks of reading.

My current total is 19,672 of the 37, 984 pages of this year’s goal, and with 31 days left on this year of reading the main goal is to have the best possible starting point for the upcoming years,

In not so good news,once again I have fallen even more behind my reading schedule, it went from 82 to 86 days , hopefully this reading surge will help me gain a bit of room to finish strong.

The projections for total pages for the year sits at 22,604, that’s a 302 improvement from last week, this type of positive numbers are great motivators to take the final weeks and finish at least 1,000 pages over that projection.

On the broader picture, my numbers show some signs of life, I keep chipping away days and pages to read.

This is most evident on the dates for reaching my first 500,000 pages, the pages to read are now 154,784, that’s 1,778 from the last update, and the new date is December 19, 2026, a 19 day gain from two weeks ago, I have finally enter year 2026, a step closer to the original end date of March 20, 2023, every day counts.

Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight the projections puts it 8,721 days away, a 33 day gain from two weeks ago, which would mean that the end date is March 23, 2045, and 5,040 days after the original plan, 20 days less.

To summary the numbers from my Journey Back, here are this week’s final numbers:

  • Pages to reach 500,000: 154,785 pages (1,476 pages less than two weeks ago)
  • Days to reach 1,000,000: 8,721 days (33 days less than two weeks ago)
  • Days behind schedule: 5,040 days (20 days less than two weeks ago)

What concerns the next decade of reading, this week’s adjustment show a bit of improvement on both my yearly and daily average, they finish like this:

  • Pages needed/year: 65,470 (147 pages less than two weeks ago)
  • Pages needed/day: 179 (1 less than two weeks ago)

I’ll continue with reading some great adventures from one of my favorite universes, and hopefully next week will be as productive as this one

Off to read.
