Readers will recall that I am attempting to read the first six books in the Harry Potter series before book seven comes out on the 21st. I had thought I was making decent progress until I ran into this little fact:
–> First three books: 1085 pages. Last three books: 2282 pages. Book five is nearly 900 pages!
For those of you counting at home, that mean I have to read nearly 2300 pages in six days (Sunday through Friday, I finished book three Saturday night). It adds up to 380 pages a day. I might not have time to actually post given that I will be reading every waking moment!
Be sure to check back to see just how much in I can read in a week.
