Yo, I completed my first light novel: 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱
I started it 西暦2009年1月16日, so it been ~130 days. It has ~300 pages so it has taken me 2.3 pages per day.
I kinda expected more from myself. I could have done it much faster.
I was that slow during the beginning chapters, during my vacations, then I got slower. Then I stopped. Then I started to read it again and all I know is that only this week I read more than 50 pages (the end is quite exciting) until I finished it.
My reading pace totally change while reading the book. In the beginning it was a mental exercise. It took a while, but it finally turned into leisure. I noticed that observing my sleeping pattern. At first, when I read during the night, I'd lose my sleep. This also occurs quite often when I do programming or play a mental game like go at night: I totally lose my sleep if I perform a task for which I need concentration to complete.
But lately It has not been affecting my sleep anymore. Actually it helped me sleep, like when I read English or Portuguese before going to bed.
