Numbers: May 28, 2021

Now that I have completed my Star Wars reading marathon the results were completely overwhelming, as I posted earlier in the week my total was a whopping 4,285 pages, and this showed up in a big way in this week’s report.

Now for the update off my progress..

My current total is 23,197 of the 37, 984 pages of this year’s goal, and I have 10 days left on this year, and as hope dies last the goal still is 25,000 pages.

In so so news, my reading schedule gained a little bit of ground , it changed from 89 days to 85 days behind, hopefully this last 10 days will be over-productive, and my participation prize

The projections for total pages for the year sits at 24,210 a much needed 1,146 page improvement from last week, a breath of fresh air from the embarrassing 6 page improvement from last week.

On the broader picture, my numbers show the kind of momentum I expect to see each and every week moving forward for the last decade of this part of my project, oh yes I have some grand plans for after the 1,000,000 but that

The new date for reaching my first 500,000 pages, now down to 151,260 pages, 1,774 less pages that last week, and the new date is November 21, 2026, this kind of gain, 26 days closer to my goal, make me think that the original end date of March 20, 2023, its an achievable goal .

Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight the projections puts it 8,626 days away, a 54 day gain from last week, which would mean that the end date is January 8, 2045, that’s 4,966 days after the original plan, 48 days less that last week, this kind of boost inject new life into my motivation.

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

  • Pages to reach 500,000: 151,260 pages (1,774 pages less than last week)
  • Days to reach 1,000,000: 8,626 days (54 days less than last week)
  • Days behind schedule: 4,966 days (48 days less than last week)

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

  • Pages needed/year: 65,126 (177 pages less than last week)
  • Pages needed/day: 178 (1 less than last week)

I’m aiming to at least be at the middle 64,000 pages to start off the next decade of reading, and of course keep on working to decrease it to under 50,000 pages for the last 5 years.

This week, which leads up to my birthday, is always a really productive, one of my annual gifts is peace and quiet, a book, lots of coffee, and new goodies to keep me on track, my beautiful wife always gets me the coolest things that end up being essential to my daily reading routine.

Let’s see what new books join my ever-growing ranks of my book shelves

Off to read.
