You're doing great anyway, so I don't think you need to challenge yourself, Zakiya :) But if you want to... I think it's always more fun!

@H.: Good luck , Heather!

Good luck!

message 10: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) thanks :D

message 11: by Caleb (new)

Caleb (calebg) OK guys, I did some math. at the rate that you are currently going you will read approximately 34,000 pages each year. At the rate you are going you will reach the million page mark in about 29 1/2 years.

Who's up for a huge party in July of 2039!!!

It's an amazingly lofty goal to shoot for.

Good Luck Heather!

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Haha. 30 years is rather frightening.

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

It is. I did math with my numbers and if I keep up reading like this -which I doubt it but let's stay optimistic- I'll need 20 years. 20! I'll be 36 by then. *shudders*

message 14: by Caleb (new)

Caleb (calebg) To hit the 20 year goal you would need to read about 180 pages every day.

I need 8-9 years, but I'll slow down so I know it won't go that quickly. The further I get this year, the better off I will be though.

Which would be no problem for me if I could stay at high school for next twenty years.
