    If you've been following me for a while you'll know that I read this book in increments over 13 months I could have read it in 12 but I took this February off because I was getting wearied by the tome If you read 3 14 pp per day you will finish this book in a year If you don't if you read it like a normal sized book I think the sheer mass of it will make you throw in the towel fairly soon But 3 14 pp are mana
