Once again my Magic Monday has to turn into a Tuesday, but with things going as they are, I really can’t complain.

My total for the week was an amazing 1,491 pages, that’s 19% more than the week’s quota. The goal of picking up my reading of the second volume of Gotrek and Felix´s Adventures and The Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy has worked out beautifully, respectively, I have completed 68% and 45% of each book. The plan is to finish them by January 31, which is about 49 and 70 daily pages of each to get this task.

Now let’s talk about MY NUMBERS, the current total is 32,399 of the 64,952 pages of this year’s goal, that’s 1,174 pages of progress since last Monday, with this, this year entered my top 5 of the best page total, now the next task, position number 4, is 12,946 pages away. Still, there’s the 3,000-plus week that eludes me, one of the goals for year number fifteen is to have at least one, and finally have the first sigil tattooed on my body.

My reading schedule, the Achilles heel of the whole shebang, is 50 days behind, one day more than last week, this minimal step back does not concern me that much, this is a reflection of the two current books that I’m reading being over 1,000 pages, slow progress with a big pay off at the end, by the end of January I should regain the lost ground and then some. My current projections put my total at 51,112 pages that are 13,830 pages less than what I’m comfortable with. The mantra for every morning will continue to be: one step at a time, one page at a time.

I start week thirty-four with a more manageable deficit of 7,095 pages, giving me quite the challenge to balance out this gargantuan number in each of the 18 weeks left on this year of reading. That number for this week is 540 additional pages to the 1,246 pages of the weekly quota.

For the first 500,000 pages, I have only 51,225 pages left, and the new date of reaching that goal is September 11,2024 that’s around 6 days earlier than the last projection, my sights are still pointed at March 20, 2023, as the desired date to reach the first half of the challenge, now I have 56 days to do so, but according to my current projection, the reality is that I’m 596 days behind schedule.

For the second part of the journey or the other 500,000 pages, my weekly pages needed are now 1,423 with a daily average of 203 pages, one daily page less than the last projection.

Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight, the projections put it 6,414 days away, a 21-day gain from the last projection, making the end date August 16, 2040, that’s 3,360 days after the original plan, 3 days less than the last projection. I have to keep reminding myself that my goal is to reach my goal by my 50th birthday, right now, I would be 59 years 2 months, and 11 days old.

To summarize the numbers from my Journey Back.

  • Pages to reach 500,000: 51,225 pages
  • Days to reach 1,000,000: 6,414 days
  • Days behind schedule: 3,360 days

As I posted a few days ago, this particular number will be the main focus of the months to follow, there´s some special events surrounding the journey, nothing better to get things done than some wacky activities to boost my morale.

The second part of the journey, or the other 500,000 pages, my weekly pages needed are now 1,506 with a daily average of 215 pages, 1 page less than the last projection.

Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight, the projections puts it 6,892 days away, a 18 day gain from the last projection, making the end date is May 17, 2041 that’s 3,634 days after the original plan, 12 days less that the last projection. I have to keep reminding myself that my goal is to reach my goal by my 50th birthday, right now, I would be 59 years 11 months, and 12 days old.

To summary the numbers from my Journey Back.

  • Pages to reach 500,000: 78,705 pages
  • Days to reach 1,000,000: 6,892 days
  • Days behind schedule: 3,634 days

Numbers: June 28, 2022

Welcome to the another episode of why in the hell did you not update the numbers on Monday, I’m your host, the procrastinator extraordinaire .

Being this year’s goal the gargantuan sum of 64,492 total pages, I must confess that this is turning up better that I could ever expect. The only thing that hasn’t quite gotten into the groove of things is the updating of my ultimate bullet journal for manually tracking my reading, well that and the fact that my reading didn’t hit quite the mark, but things are right on schedule.

Now let’s talk about MY NUMBERS, the current total is 3,969 of the 64,952 pages of this year’s goal, a pretty decent progress to start off the year. Still, the 3,000 plus week, eludes, but it will fall, eventually, I hope.

My reading schedule, the Achilles heel of the whole shebang, is surprisingly, right on schedule, this gives me the incentive to not fall back, as long as it is right on time, that will suffice.

The mantra for every morning will continue to be:, one step at a time, one page at a time.

I start the week four with a deficit of 158 pages, not that much, considering that I haven’t got that much free time to get those massive reading sessions, I’ll quicken the pace, and make special efforts to make some space to unwind.

For the first 500,000 pages, I have only 79,655 pages left, and the new date of reaching that goal is February 2, 2025 that’s 22 days earlier than the last projection, my sights are still pointed at March 20, 2023 as the desired date to reach the first half of the challenge, now I have 266 days to do so.The gap narrowed from 708 to 686 days behind schedule.

The second part of the journey, or the other 500,000 pages, my weekly pages needed are now 1,511 with a daily average of 216 pages, 2 pages less than the last projection.

Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight, the projections puts it 6,910 days away, a 89 day gain from the last projection, making the end date is May 29, 2041 that’s 3,646 days after the original plan, 44 days less that the last projection. I have to keep reminding myself that my goal is to reach my goal by my 50th birthday, right now, I would be 59 years 11 months, and 24 days old.

To summary the numbers from my Journey Back.

  • Pages to reach 500,000: 79,655 pages
  • Days to reach 1,000,000: 6,910 days
  • Days behind schedule: 3,646 days
