75 pages a week doesn’t seem too bad. I’ve lately been finding that if I can break my big reads down into smaller reads (I’ve currently given myself the goal of one section of Bolaño’s 2666 per month) then I find them less daunting. I hope you post status updates letting us know how it’s going!
Via con dios. Should I e-mail you the pic with the bookmark halfway through where I stalled 10 years ago? At least I’ve moved to new houses three times with the book, so that means I’ll pick it up again, right?
My husband started it on a vacation to the North Shore we took in the summer of ‘00, gave up, then read it again last summer. Only eight years, compared to your ten, but why not join the challenge, and have another go? All the cool kids are doing it…
The tricky thing is that they’ve allotted pages based only on the books, figuring the end notes will average out. But I just finished a very dense 9 page end note, so this may be more of a fill time gig than I thought it would be.
I urge you to get books from your local, independent bookstores
or your local public library. If you purchase books at Amazon.com
through links from this site, I receive a small percentage, which I put toward more books, CDs and DVDs to review. Thank you for your consideration.
