Do page numbers freak you out?
Before I started blogging I can say no, I didn’t care if a book was 500 pages or 100 pages. Sometimes I felt the longer the book the better because if it’s a good story I would hate for it to end so soon. I remember reading a few historical romance books that were 400 pages or more and devouring every single page.
After I started blogging I become more aware of page numbers and tend to panic when I see a number that is over 400, Why? Maybe because I have more of a time line to read a book or maybe because I have found so many good books that I want to read. Since I am such a slow reader and sometimes my time is limited to read with the little ones it’s quicker for me to read short ones, 300 pages or less… Is it fair ?t No, I might be missing out on an amazing book because the pages numbers do sort of freak me out.
How do I fix this? I am not sure, maybe I can time myself to see how long it takes me to read a few pages and then figure out how long a book will really take me to read if it’s 400 pages. That might take away some of the stress and panic knowing, for example, a 400 page book might take me 5 days to read give or take how much time I have. This would help me schedule my time and understand that a book that is 400 or more pages can be read, just need to set the time aside to read it. Does this sound like a fun way to read? Not really but since I want to “READ ALL THE BOOKS” I think a schedule of some kind or knowledge of a reading timetable will allow me to read more and stress about pages numbers less.
So my answer is YES page numbers do freak me out but I think now I figured out how to fix that!
