On Sept. 18, Scotland will head to the polls to vote on the Scottish Independence Referendum Bill.

HOW LONG IT TAKES TO READ THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR BOOKS: http://shortlist.com/entertainment/books/how-long-it-takes-to-read-the-worlds-most-popular-books
My brain likes this like this.
This is almost too good.
I gotta go, I have some reading to do.
Oh god, so I saw this come up and I had a momentary flash of annoyance that Wheel of Time wasn’t on the list, but it’s a little more niche than ASOIAF/GoT, so whatever.
But then I realized I could pretty easily figure it out myself.
Yeah, you think ASOIAF is super impressive at 98.33 hours, or 1,770,000 words?
Wheel of Time clocks in at a whopping 245.69 hours.Our beloved series is 4,422,400 words long. That makes it about 2.5 times the length of ASOIAF.

but then again “average reading speed” assumes you’re not stopping ever paragraph to go “what the fuck did I just read”
when I read Ulysses with my class we sometimes read for 12 hours at a time in the day. sometimes we read for 4. Overall, it took us a month to read that book and that’s ALL WE DID (besides sleep and eat and go to class of course)
ha im a piece of trash

reblogging this like the wind and god bless the person who made this
i know how to do the calculation longhand or at least i used to, but hearing it from someone else always silences my irritating voice of anxiety a little better so hopefully some other people can appreciate that effect too
Why the heck didn’t I know about this when I was in college?
