Today marks a very special occasion, the end and beginning of a year, number thirteen makes way for number fourteen, the first to start one day after my birthday and the inaugural year of my last decade to reach 1,000,000 pages.
Now for the update of my final numbers of (Y-13)
- Total pages : 25,034
- Best month: May, 2021 with 4,991 total pages
- Worst month: February, 2021 with 1,688 total pages
- Best day: November 8, 2020 with 710 total pages
- Daily Average: 105 pages
- Percentage read from goal : 66%
- Total items read: 171
- Books : 24
- Comics: 76
- Graphic Novels/Manga : 71
On my notebook, I have a page that I call days left, where I check off each reading day with a color that represent that day’s progress, from the dreadful 0 to the blissful 500 or more pages this is how it turn out.
Because it was a short year, I didn’t adjust the grid, hence the white mess on the page of the right, to resume my reading days where as follow:
- O total pages: 3 days
- 1 to 50 total pages : 79 days
- 51 to 100 total pages : 60 days
- 101 to 150 total pages : 50 days
- 151 to 299 total pages : 42 days
- More than 300 total pages : 10 days
- More than 500 total pages : 3 days
As you can see it was pretty decent year, with the total from this year the goal to start off this decade of reading will be 64,942 for (Y-14) , and hopefully it will stay at least that number for the subsequent years.
On the broader picture I start this new year with some good news, the new date for reaching my first 500,000 pages, from which I still have 150,337 pages left , is October 23, 2026, a 32 day gain from the last projection.
Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight the projections puts it 8,538 days away, a 88 day gain from last projection, which would mean that the end date is October 22, 2044, that’s 4,888 days after the original plan, 78 days less that the last projection, to start this fresh year with such good progress it only predicts that this will be an amazing run.
As I posted before this year will be focused on Science Fiction books, I have some amazing things lined up, but to start, I’ll journey into the imagination of one of Kevin J. Anderson and the critically acclaimed Saga of the Seven Suns.
Let the festivities begin.
Off to read.
