I have looked at the remaining books I have, eliminated the two longest ones, added together the pages of all of the other books and divided that by the number of days left in the year.
My golden number? 20 pages per day. That seems doable, right? Assuming I don't miss a day and have to do 40 the next, of course...
Meanwhile, The Venetian's Wife is going quickly (yay for illustrations) so that should help.
Sometime last year, I told someone about this TBR challenge and their response was that they didn't like the sound of "reading just to get reading done." I have never felt that way about this challenge, even *now* as I count up how many pages I need to read per day for the rest of the year to complete it.
Isn't that what a "challenge" is about? Maybe this person just didn't like the idea of reading as a "challenge" (versus a "pleasure" or a "pastime")? Hrm. What do you think?
