Could you read 500 500 page books in a year?

If you were paid 500 million dollars to read 500 – 500 page books in 1 year , do you think you could do it?

500 books in a year is 1.36 books a day.  500 pages would take about 5 hours, maybe ten, depending on the distraction level and difficulty.  So, assuming 10 hours a book, that would be 14 hours a day reading.

Add 8 hours a day for sleep, you get 22 hours.  2 hours to do EVERYTHING else.

If I got a portion of the money ahead of time and was able to stop working and hire someone to take care of cooking, cleaning, driving, errands, etc, sure, I could do it, assuming I chose the books.  There are too many life admin things to take care of otherwise.
