Recently, I turned 33. Assuming the best case scenario that I am reading till 75 years of my age leaves me with 42 years of reading i.e. 504 months. This means that with my current reading pace of one book a month, I can read ~500 books in my remaining lifetime.
Isn’t this revealing? I’ve to either choose my readings carefully or increase my pace. Probably both.
Well, here is the list of my readings for 2016.
