Monday evening 'round 11 I had this gchat conversation with miss Melis:
me: Sirius just died
me: 73 hours until the movie - 24 hours of work - 8 hours of class - roughly 21 hours of sleep = only 20 hours to read 1366 pages of Harry Potter
That's 68.3 pages an hour
oh, I can do that
I love that you just did that math
me: well I didn't think it was possible. but now I'm thinking maybe it actually is
Melissa: you can do it!
And so I did. With 15 hours 'til showtime, I have 324 pages left in Deathly Hallows. Although, 7.5 of those hours will be spent at work and 4 in class, so I guess that really leaves me with 3.5 reading hours. That's 92.57 pages an hour. Up from the original goal, but I can totally do it. I read more than 100 on the T ride in this morning.
I think tomorrow's going to be a rough day. About five hours of sleep coupled with soul-wrenching Harry Potter finale feelings? Thank goodness the weekend is coming to recoup.
But it's been a good thirteen years. And I'm certain David Yates will send us all out in style.
