500,000-page watch: July 24, 2022

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.

500,000-page watch: July 14, 2022

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.

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.

With 256 days left for my left imposed deadline, March 20, 2023, I tough that was a good time to see how things are shaping-up for the first 500,00 pages of this 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 5,626, and my average is 181 pages per day, just a little over the daily average needed to achieve this year´s goal.

In addition to the total pages, this year I added a new challenge, read at least 2 hours per day, so far, there are 48 hours tallied since the year started. You can see the run down of my challenges in the image below.

500,000-page watch: April 17,2022

I still have the crazy idea to reach my first half of the 1,000,000-page challenge by March 20, 2023. This means that I have 338 days to do so.

With the latest update my grand total stands at 404,306 pages, leaving me with 95,694 pages to reach this coveted part of my journey. With the recent success on my daily reading, there’s a real possibility to even get there sooner, leaving a little more time to go after the second half of my goal.

The daily average for getting there is 283, of which, I have surpassed in 8 of the last 9 days of reading. It’s quite the gargantuan task, and to be completely, my main concern is to amass the vast quantity of reading material to get it done.

On queue there’s 48,228 available, that’s doesn’t even scratch the surface of how many pages I have left to read, it represents around 10%, thankfully, there’s a lot of material available in my Kindle Unlimited membership.

Lots of things to cover to get pass the goal, but that’s part of what keeps it fun and fresh, testament to this is that I have been doing it for 1/3 of my life.

Off to read.
