Below is the list for this year. See complete list.

8,906 pages in the selected books (an average of about 342 pages each).

That's an average of about 14 days per book (assuming no overlap) or 9 days per book (taking actual overlap into consideration), which is equivalent to 26 books (or 8,930 pages) per year. Or 24 pages per day, actually.

Typical number of books in progress simultaneously: 1.
