100 Days!

My app informs me that today is the 100th day in a row that I have stuck to my goal of reading for at least 30 minutes a day.

In that time, I've finished:
War and Peace (1,296 pages)
Infinite Jest (1,079 pages)
Elegant Complexity: A Study of David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest (524 pages)
Catch-22 (453 pages)
Dune (412 pages)
Lolita (336 pages)

For a grand total of 4,100 pages. To be clear, I did not read that in 50 hours. I always go over a half hour at least a little to finish a chapter. When I got through Infinite Jest and Elegant Complexity in two weeks I was probably averaging closer to two hours a day. I'd still be in the beginning of Dune if I hadn't spent 10+ hours in airports and planes yesterday.

Thanks to everyone who's provided encouragement, comments, and recommendations! Hopefully I'll be able to make a similar post when I hit 200.
