As mentioned in Friday’s post, I wanted to do a baseline report before Bout of Books starts, so that I know how much progress I make over the week.
My goal is to complete 3 books, since my weekly average is around 1.5. However, I am in the middle of several books, so I decided to break that down into pages read instead of complete books.
According to a Google search, the standard average number of words on a page is 250, and according to this article from the Huffington Post, there are about 64,000 words in the average novel. Therefore, every 256 pages I read will count as a book read. This seems pretty low to me?? I definitely think I can get 768 pages done this week, and may just aim for 1,000.
I will be posting a new update every evening of this week, so follow along!
Now, if you will excuse me, it’s time to get settled in for Once Upon A Time’s 2-hour season finale! I’m hoping for more Emma and Hook lovin’!!! 😉
Some women collect shoes, others collect purses. I collect books.
