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.
