After a strong start this year... I fell behind. In fact, I'm shocked to realize that my last real post was in May! (It was the preview post for book #6 -- Roald Dahl -- I was still on track then!) This week, I finally posted the Night Manager for my #7 (even though it almost killered me.) (Ha.)
I finished reading the Dahl awhile back (need to write it up) (if I can remember it -- thank goodness I took a few notes!) and I've begun Turn of the Screw/Daisy Miller.
So, as I have done every year after our first year of this blog, I will now drop the two longest books left in my pile, count the pages left in the rest, and math out my page-per-day push for the rest of the year. Here's what's left (excluding the Henry James, as that's already underway):
Re-math bumps me up to almost 18p/day through the end of November. Still doable. Just need to... get on it.
(I have been reading. Just not my TBR books. Heh.)
For kicks and giggles (and to procrastinate on getting my 18 pages of Henry James in today -- but I'll save that problem for a separate dedicated post), I looked to see what I had posted previously with my "final countdown" posts:
- 2012 : I started worrying in late September. (Click that link -- I had a really giant intimating stack!) At that point, I had 20pp/day to read.
- 2013 : Late October and the stack was far more manageable looking. And it was: only 17pp/day to get to my goal.
- 2014 : Early October (What? No picture of the stack?!) and my big issue was not number of pages per day to get through (a paltry 15) but the fact that I had not written up most of my books (at that point, I had only posted about *3* of them!)
Up next: the Dahl re-cap and the James preview.
