Harry Potter Factoid of the Day

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.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
