Sometimes I feel like the NEET life would be so much easier.
If you read two hours a day you could read every single one of these this year. Don't be a faggot. I work full time go to the gym 4x a week, and I still read a book every three days more or less.
>tfw I will knock out at least half of these in the coming year
>tfw I will also crush through a ton of history in the meantime
But I'm still panicking because I'd like to read some stuff in its original language, and my commitment to locking down the languages I kind of know, and learning another, is almost nonexistent, even though I know I have the time and ability to achieve reading proficiency in 5-6 modern languages.
>tfw haven't read Dante in Italian
>tfw haven't read Hugo in French
>tfw haven't read Dostoevsky in Russian
>tfw haven't read Goethe in German
It's not at all finding the time to read that's hard, I read 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day on average. It's just that I already have a general outline of a bunch of stuff I want to read through this year and it's gonna be hard to fit even one of those into my reading schedule.
Because only a whiny teenager would complain about being this under read, yet still view reading as a chore

You should be excited you idiot.
Don't worry about it anon, you can get most of these done this year.
Just spend two hours a day reading like the other anon said. Do you play video games? Do you waste time on 4chan? Instead of wasting your hours doing that, spend it reading those books.
Doesn't even have to be two hours if you don't feel like reading for that long. Just make it 30 pages a day, completely doable. Just don't rush it, or you won't understand what you're reading and all that will go to waste.
But if you have cancer or someshit, I suggest you do things you never got to do in life instead of sitting at home reading books.
I guess I used a poor choice of words for the OP since I'm not at all weary to read through the books on the list, actually I am pretty looking forward to most of them when I get to it. It's mostly just what I said in>>7588354 that nerves me. Although I partially take that back as I really only have up til late August figured out and I might be able to read one those in the fall.
You do realize these aren't canon, right? They're just stupid 4chan memes.
I've been trying to cut back on my wasted time and reading more. Went from reading 10 pages every other day, to 10 a day, to 20 a day, now I read 30-50 a day. Trying to get 100 today before I sleep. I'm NEET though so really I should be reading even more.
Also this. While you generally get a decent amount of free time during the day as a student, there are plenty of nights where you end up having to take a break from your reading schedule to focus on homework. Then there are always weeks where you have a coupe exams or big papers due and that really fucks shit up.
