How long will you take to finish your to-read list?

I found this fun little tool at http://www.readitforward.com. Fill in the form with how many books you currently have on your to-read list, the number of books you read last year and your age, and it will tell you how long you will need to read all those books. Obviously it doesn’t take into account that I can read some books in half an hour while others take months, but I decided to give it a go anyway.

unread books
Unread books… although I’ve actually read a few from these selves and added new ones since this photo was taken

I didn’t want to go and physically count all the unread books on my shelves, so I took the ones I’ve marked as “want to read” on Good Reads (1395 for the record) then added 25 to account for the fact that not all the ones I own are actually marked as to-read on Good Reads – which is probably an underestimate, but oh well. Here’s my result, assuming I never add another book to my list 😉

Reading all 1420 books will take:

13 years and 7 months

You will finish your TBR pile on:

October 31, 2031

And you will be:

48

I may have a slight problem. (“Hi, my name is Beverley and I’m a bookaholic”)

How long will it take you to finish all the books you currently want to read? Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s going to need literally years
