Now That’s What I Call A Book Log

Here is what Joe Bernstein read, or at least skimmed, this year:

Via. It adds up to more than 100,000 words, if you’re wondering. I am boggled, approaching staggered.

For reference, here’s last year; a measly 70k.

  1. Nitpick: I think you mean 100,000 pages. LoTR alone is 400,000 words and it didn’t take me 4+ years to read.

    But then, you are literally correct… it is more than 100,000 words.

  2. Ah, sorry. It’s the “Here is what Joe Bernstein read” plus “It adds up to more than 100,000 words” in your handwriting, so to speak, that threw me!

    I haven’t looked into the details… I wonder if he has read 100,000 pages. That would be 4 million words or so.

  3. Hmmm. I read about 500 pages a day every day. That works out to 182,500 pages a year. I then write three pages on each book so that’s 1095 pages. @300 words per page, that would be just shy of 55 million words read per year and almost 330,000 words written per year.

  4. Technically a nightmare is a kind of dream so those are not necessarily opposed choices.

    It’s more a dream than anything else. Even in the worst case scenario, which for no reason we will label “condition krapman”, I get paid for the time spent reading the book and for writing a negative review. Condition krapman books I read on my own cost me lifespan and money with no compensation offered.

    I see some review discussions about whether or not a reviewer should say negative things about a book simply because the book in question is horrible or whether we’re all in it together in a hostile and empty sea and should practice saying nice things with a straight face. I am happy to say that I’ve never been asked to give anything but my honest opinion and I am entirely free to poke holes in other people’s inflatable lifeboats.
