Keeping a close watch to the impending, self imposed deadline to reach the first half million pages, that, of you remember, is on March 20, 2023 . These leaves me with 249 days to complete the first leg of the journey, and while we are here, give you a quick run down of this year’s numbers so far.
Starting with how things are going in the fifteen year of reading. Well, fortunately, I’m right on track to reach the 64,942. My current total is 6,548, and my average is 177 pages per day, just a little under the daily average needed to achieve this year´s goal, but nothing major.
In order to keep a better tally off how things are progressing I added a new challenge in the Goals App, in addition to the the total pages for the year and month, and the total hours of the year a month, a new countdown to the coveted 500,000-page mark. It starts with a total 77,554 pages. You can see the run down of my challenges in the image below.
Now for the main concern, right now I still have 77,076 pages left, and according to my projections, I will be arriving to this milestone on January 15, 2025. This date puts me 668 days behind schedule. The challenge now is to read an average of 305 pages, not impossible, but mind you, quite the gargantuan task.
Off to read.
