You know that book you have been wanting to read all summer, but you just haven’t had the time? Well, we can’t help you find the motivation to read, but we can tell you how long it might take you to read it!

Wolfram|Alpha calculates that it would take 130 hours to finish all five books, and 140 hours if an auctioneer spoke each book.
