what the fuck is your reading speed to be able to read all that and where do you take into account the extra time when in need to slow down so you can understand?

>> No.12978986

those books are shit, kek. I missed OP's point

>> No.12978991

if i read 15 minutes a day i would probably finish about half of a dickens novel in a year

>> No.12979298

15 minutes i could read 20 pages about on average

20x365=7300 this doesnt even cover hp and ice and fire

bloody hell stop being a fucking retard

>> No.12979308

Yeah fuck that shit

>> No.12980023

make that at least 1 hour and we might start getting somewhere. On average I think I'd read about 25-30 pages an hour. 30*365 = 10950. But then again, the Bible alone is over 1000

15 minutes is a dumb way too look at it. How bout read 20 pages a day. Thats one hundred pages every 5 days.

>> No.12980256

only 7300 pages a year >>12979298

>> No.12980271

Because most people schedule their time using standard divisions by minute instead of the variable time required to read 20 pages. 20 pages of George RR Martin is like 5 pages of Dostoyevsky

>> No.12980275

I'm fairly sure you couldn't read all of those books inside a year reading 15 minutes a day.

>> No.12980279

Also the text is super dense. I spent a few months reading the Bible and only got to the end of Leviticus.

>not just playing the audiobook while you sleep, letting you remember everything subliminally

>> No.12980647

don't forget the mahabharata

>> No.12980981

do you even read?

>> No.12981020

the moses books are truly the most boring, leviticus being the worst

>> No.12981072

unbelievably based
