2 thoughts on “How come whenever we read a book we turn to the end to find out how many pages it is? Why do we need to track our progress so?

    that’s a great question. i do it too. Probably some sense of accomplishment, like knowing you are 5k into a 10k race. For a good book, it adds excitement knowing you are closing in on the big finish. For a bad book (well, you should probably forget it), but in the event that it is one you feel like you MUST read, how much more you have to endure…

    I read alot of books and I do also look to see how many pages there are left. BUT, I must say it has nothing to do with any accomplishment. I am trying to gauge how far along in the story I am, and if there is time for any new twists..
