Numerología de la lectura. Podemos

Ya casi terminando el día del libro veo este The Sad, Beautiful Fact That We're All Going To Miss Almost Everything donde se hacen números sencillos para que nos hagamos una idea de lo poco que podremos leer a lo largo de nuestra vida de todo lo disponible.

Me ha recordado, por cierto, al lector aquel de La Nausea Jean Paul Sartre y su audotidacto, el hombre que planea leer toda la biblioteca siguiendo el orden alfabético.

En cierto modo, esa numerología nos libera:


Consider books alone. Let's say you read two a week, and sometimes you take on a long one that takes you a whole week. That's quite a brisk pace for the average person. That lets you finish, let's say, 100 books a year. If we assume you start now, and you're 15, and you are willing to continue at this pace until you're 80. That's 6,500 books, which really sounds like a lot.


Puesto que no vamos a poder leerlo todo, relajémonos, disfrutemos y aprovechemos lo que podamos leer.

La autora lo ve como una rendición, no estoy de acuerdo.


Surrender, on the other hand, is a little sad. That's the moment you realize you're separated from so much. That's your moment of understanding that you'll miss most of the music and the dancing and the art and the books and the films that there have ever been and ever will be, and right now, there's something being performed somewhere in the world that you're not seeing that you would love.
