The impending, self imposed deadline to reach the first half million pages, that, of you remember, is on March 20, 2023 , has only 239 days to peak it´s ugly head and with it the completion of the first leg of the journey, and while we are here, I’ll 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 9,119, and my average is 190 pages per day, that’s 12 pages above daily average needed to achieve this year´s goal.
Things are progressing as they should, as you can see from the Goals App image, what started with 77,554 pages to the coveted 500,000-page mark, it now has a 4% progress, not the flashy number but a constant movement in the right direction. As the other four tasks in my tracker, things are right where they should be, in some cases, a little ahead of schedule . You can see a full run down of my challenges in the image below.
Now for the main concern is the 74,505 pages left, and according to my projections, I will be arriving to this milestone on December 22, 2024. This date puts me 635 days behind schedule, 33 days earlier that the last projection of this particular goal. The challenge now is to read an average of 311 pages, which I have done some in more that one occasion in the last 10 days, but it has to become the benchmark of each and everyday for the foreseeable future.
Off to read.
